C. Peter McRoy


Dr. McRoy traveled to Cold Bay, Alaska with 5 Barrow High School students, a science teacher, and a U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service biologist. The trip was part of a ecological field trip to Izembek National Wildlife Refuge to address eelgrass bed ecology.

At Izembek Lagoon, Dr. McRoy worked with the students and showed them the eelgrass beds. Students learned how to collect eelgrass samples and process them.

A follow up visit by a FWS biologist and Dr. McRoy is currently being planned for a post-journey lesson. This would include Dr. McRoy working with the students to finish up the eelgrass processing. Also the data would be analyzed and the results discussed.
