Join the Oklahoma Water Resources Board at the Oklahoma Wildlife Expo

Oklahoma Wildlife Expo is again drawing near, and this year the Oklahoma Water Resources Board (OWRB) will hosting the "Getting Bugged About Water Quality" activity at booth #48. The Expo will be held September 25-27th at the Lazy E Arena in Guthrie.

With a focus on visual activities for Expo attendees, the OWRB booth will feature a viewing station for macroinvertebrate organisms commonly found in Oklahoma's lakes and streams. Macroinvertebrates are basically small aquatic insects that serve as a food source for fish in Oklahoma's lakes and streams. Studying macroinvertebrates helps the OWRB's water monitoring teams determine the health status of a particular aquatic ecosystem.

The OWRB's booth will also include a model for demonstrating how water flows through the ground beneath our feet. The model simulates how both water and other substances move through different types of aquifers allowing people to "see" groundwater.

"We are excited to participate in the Oklahoma Wildlife Expo again this year. The OWRB works closely with Oklahoma's Wildlife Department and other wildlife related groups throughout the year, and the Expo is always a great event for Oklahoma students and other attendees," said Chris Hargis a member of the OWRB's Water Monitoring team.
