Project Description

Gina Mancini-Samuelson, Associate Professor of Chemistry and Biochemistry, and Sarah Van Loenen, student researcher, received a $2,000 award from the 3M Small Scale Grant program to create interdisciplinary curriculum for Advanced Analytical Chemistry laboratory (CHEM4200). The project will further investigate the impact of prairie restoration by focusing on various water sources found at the Conservancy. The goal of this project is to collect baseline data on bodies of water. A plot of land was recently purchased containing a stream that leads into the St. Croix River. Water samples from this stream will be characterized and compared to other water sites that are currently part of Belwin’s prairie restoration. If time allows, soil samples near the bodies of water will also be compared.
