Stream Insect Monitoring
Want to spend part of the day conducting science?! We thought so!
Stream insects are a good measure of water quality since many are pollutant sensitive and can be easily identified. Basically, the absence of certain bugs tells us that the water is polluted!
Groups will collect and identify insects from different sites in the Bear Creek and Rogue River watersheds.
No experience is necessary and all ages are strongly encouraged to attend!
Want more incentive? How about free lunch!
Bring waders if you have them and make sure to dress for for the weather! (Always wear extra layers.)
Please RSVP to Nichol De Mol: firstname.lastname@example.org
