What can streams and lake sediments tell us about fish? How do people value the resources around them? Explore the tools scientists are using to measure land and water changes, learn how fish respond, and try to understand what dynamic landscapes mean for our communities at this free Discovery Lab for all ages. This discovery lab is sponsored by Alaska EPSCoR Soutcentral Test Case.

The Kachemak Bay Research Reserve's (KBRR) Discovery Labs are innovative education programs provided to students throughout the school year. Each Discovery Lab - situated in the AK Islands & Ocean Visitor Center's lab classroom - focuses on a single topic and features 8 or more learning stations with hands-on and inquiry-based activities, research updates, lots of touchable objects and organisms, and more. Depending on the topic, the students' experience may be self-directed (allowing each student to devote as much time as they choose at each of the learning stations) or led by KBRR staff.
