Our County Public Works, Mosquito Commission participated in the "Take Your Child to Work." Below are a few pictures. We were unable to follow them to all the areas they ventured; however, they reported the following:
Their day began at 7:00 am by prepping our paperwork and checking water levels in LAC Township and we saw a bald eagle before 7:30am! We were able to see the men working on a sluice door before heading into Salem for the morning program. After lunch, we inspected some resident requests and found mosquito larvae that was brought back to the lab to be preserved. The kids each left with a vial to share with their classes. This is just a few of the snapshots from their day! (4 photos)
