Support Hancock Biological Station on Kentucky Lake
February 26, 2016 | Staff Report
Murray State University operates Hancock Biological Station
on Kentucky Lake. The station is a year-round facility providing
scientists with a base of operation for a wide variety of field
research and presenting students with opportunities for
field-oriented classes, individualized instruction, independent
research, and close interactions with researchers and faculty.
One very important aspect of their work is they provide water quality monitoring on Kentucky Lake. Not only do they provide the all-important water temperature data, they monitor oxygen levels, pH, chlorophyll, turbidity, oxidation, and much more - basically monitoring the health of our fisheries.
Considering the potential significant cuts to university budgets, and the damage done to their monitoring stations by the New Year’s Flood on Kentucky Lake, ExploreKentuckyLake.com is making a contribution to help fund their monitoring program. We encourage you to contribute as well. To find out more and to make a donation, click here.
