GRADUATE RESEARCH AT SEVEN PONDS
Two Oakland University graduate students have selected Seven Ponds Nature Center as the site of their graduate-level research. Their projects will study the effects of artificial light on aquatic and littoral invertebrates. They will be utilizing Waterfowl Pond and the adjacent shoreline and field in the North-80 for their research, which will take place over the course of this summer. We're excited that they will be utilizing the natural areas at Seven Ponds, and we are happy to support ecological research and the advance of environmental science.
