Most memorable CNR experience: As a student in Frank Wilhelm’s Limnology course (FISH 415) I got the best the CNR had to offer between in class and lab instruction. We also got to travel to Council, Idaho for a service learning project regarding man made ponds at the OX Ranch. When on site we collected a variety of samples and analyzed them at the labs in the CNR. In the end, our groups researched what possible restoration activities the landowners could perform and presented our findings to them in a final presentation. It was a great full circle experience in how what we learned IS important and it DOES apply to those around us!
