St Louis River Watch Watches Mercury

Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College, Minnesota, participates in the St. Louis River Watch Special Emphasis Project, keeping track of mercury levels in the watershed. Nearly 400 area middle and high school students have joined with undergraduates to gather data throughout the watershed and Lake Superior basin. Undergraduate students are also examining atmospheric loading of mercury and possible bioaccumulation in dragonflies.

NIFA originally published this impact in the NIFA 2017 Annual Report. Want to read about more impacts like this? Check out Fresh from the Field, a weekly bulletin showcasing transformative impacts made by grantees funded by NIFA.
