More Pond and Wetland Organisms Arrive at the EcoCenter

Today 19 different commonly found freshwater organisms arrived at the EcoCenter.  Some of each will be used to reseed the constructed wetland and pond mesocosms.  They will also be cultured by CCSF students who have worked diligently all semester preparing live material care sheets, culture media and appropriate "habitats" so we can always have them on hand.  They will be used in educational programs and tours so we can educate our visitors on the important roles that they play in our wastewater treatment system and in nature.  Check out the organisms in the slideshow below and come visit the EcoCenter to see meet them in person.
