Ever give a second thought to the cold, clean water that reliably flows from your tap? Utah State University water scientist Nancy Mesner thinks about it all the time and explores the journey of that water — and her personal journey as an investigator who studies it — at Science Unwrapped Friday, April 26.  

Mesner, associate professor in USU’s Department of Watershed Sciences and Ecology Center and lead for the university’s Water Quality Extension, presents “Changing the World…One Drop at a Time” at 7 p.m. in the Emert Auditorium, Room 130, of the Eccles Science Learning Center. Hosted by USU’s College of Science, her talk is free and open to all ages.

Mesner coordinates statewide educational efforts in water quality assessment and monitoring and oversees volunteer monitoring programs. She has been recognized by the governor’s office for her development of watershed science curricula for public school students.

Following Mesner’s talk, Science Unwrapped attendees are invited to enjoy a variety of hands-on learning activities, including what’s meant by the term “hard water” and demonstrations of easy ways to measure water quality in Utah’s lakes and streams, along with exhibits detailing Bear River Range geology and the karst springs of Logan Canyon.

The April 26 event is the final presentation in Science Unwrapped’s spring 2013 “Water” series. Science Unwrapped returns with a new series in fall 2013.
