 GREAT AMERICAN SECCHI DIP-IN TO BE HELD AT LOCH LOMOND

Santa Cruz (July 10, 2017) – The City of Santa Cruz Water Department and the Coastal Watershed Council invite the public to celebrate National Lakes Appreciation Month by joining The Great American Secchi Dip-In at Loch Lomond Reservoir on Saturday, July 29. Reservations are required and space is limited.

The Secchi Disk is a simple diagnostic tool created by Fr. Pietro Angelo Secchi during the 1850s. It is used to measure lake clarity and transparency. During National Lakes Appreciation Month Secchi Dip-In events take place all across the United States and Canada. Participants in the Loch Lomond Secchi Dip-In will have the chance to use the Secchi Disk in addition to learning about the City’s watershed and being able to explore the park’s trails. The Secchi Dip-In will take place at 11:00am

For more information or to reserve a space, please RSVP by email to the Coastal Watershed Council at www.sanlorenzoriver.org/secchidipin2017.
