On Tuesday, February 25, Justin Weiss, Assistant Professor of Biology at MCTC, with Thomas Biebighauser, retired wildlife biologist from the US Forestry Service, John Utterback, of Utterback Excavating LLC, and students of Mr.Weiss’ biology classes completed two artificial wetlands on MCTC’s Maysville campus. A wetland is formed from soil with high clay content and poor drainage, thereby saturating the area with water. Wetlands differ from ponds by being shallower, containing no fish, and drying up during the late summer months. Mr. Weiss had the idea of building wetlands after attending a Kentucky Association of Environmental Educators conference in September 2012 in which Mr. Biebighauser was presenting on wetland development. Having wetlands on campus appealed to Mr. Weiss as a means to increase hands-on science education opportunities to MCTC students as well as area K-12 schools, and community education classes, in an outdoor setting.
