Drop in every Saturday between 2-4 pm, and together, we’ll explore different aspects of our environment during fun and interactive sessions in our water lab.
Macroinvertebrates: A River Continuum (April – June 2017)
Macroinvertebrates are organisms that are big enough for you to see with the bare eye, but without backbones. These freshwater creatures are indicators of river health. In our water lab, sample river water and learn what part of the river macroinvertebrates reside – source (beginning), course (middle), or mouth (end) – based on their unique characteristics.
You may find more “shredders” like caddis flies at the source, more “grazers” like snails at the course, and more “collectors” like mussels at the mouth.
