LIFE`s Science Day – a wonderful show of sun and clouds
Students of the Rudolf Maister Gymnasium of Kamnik were greeted by rain upon arrival at the intermittent Cerknica Lake. Then, the rest of the science day dedicated to the preparation for the biology matura exam was spent in a spirit of research and a unique autumn atmosphere.
The students learned about the functioning of Lake Cerknica water system and the life along it, adapted to the changing conditions that prevail on this largest intermittent lake in our country. Aquatic invertebrates and frogs are already looking for shelter before the winter, but with some effort we managed to catch a few representatives of animals that have Lake Cerknica as their home.
The wonderful natural show of the sun and the clouds was enriched by the eternal elegance of flocks of great white herons, which were switching for lunch in the shallows of the now full lake.
