Hunting for zebras: Students take on lake threat as project
Jefferson High School students in John Esbjornsson's environmental science classes got more than they bargained for on a recent field trip.
According to Esbjornsson, the students in his class have a great interest in the lakes of Douglas County and the impact that the recent invasion of zebra mussels have on the aquatic ecosystem.
The students contacted Nathan Olson, an invasive species specialist with the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) out of Fergus Falls.
