The Hocking College Experience

Students in GeoEnvironmental Science Program Study Ohio’s Buried Valley Aquifers

by Hocking College Contributing Writer

Groundwater supplies about 40% of the nation’s drinking water. It's especially important in rural areas, but even urban areas may depend on groundwater to meet a significant portion of daily needs. Groundwater, unlike surface water in streams and lakes, is a largely invisible resource because its presence is hidden beneath the Earth's surface. Groundwater is not evenly distributed and is available in greater quantities in some areas than in others.

ICYMI: Hocking College Hosts Introduction to Wildlife Rehabilitation Workshop

by Hocking College Contributing Writer

Hocking College hosted an Introduction to Wildlife Rehabilitation workshop on Sunday, March 31. Wildlife Rehabilitation, or the process of nurturing orphaned and injured wildlife back to health, interests many people from all walks of life. From what people watch on television, wildlife rehab can appear to be a very glamorous activity, with volunteers gracefully freeing bald eagles into the sky and caring for adorable baby animals.

However; in reality, rehabilitation of wild animals involves around-the-clock care, and the understanding that many animals do not survive or are unable to be released back into the wild. Thus, it’s truly a labor of love, but can be very rewarding for those passionate enough to put their heart and souls into these animals.
