RELEASE DATE: March 28, 2012

PAISLEY – The Lake County Parks & Trails Division is inviting residents to participate in an introduction to basic water quality concepts and monitoring on Saturday, April 7 from 9 a.m. to noon at the Ellis Acres Reserve, located at 25302 County Road 42 in Paisley.

With guidance from the county’s Public Lands Program Manager, participants will have an opportunity for a hands-on experience in water sampling and will be able to explore segments of the over 400-acre reserve.

In addition, participants are asked to bring their own water, snacks, sunscreen, insect repellent, a hat and hiking shoes. This event is free and reservations are encouraged, as space is limited.
