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.
Ellis Acres Reserve sits on the western shoreline of Lake Akron and is home to many species of wildlife. It also contains longleaf pine wooded pastures and forested wetlands.
