posted February 17, 2017 under: Rogue River Blog LGROW News Blog

February 17, 2017 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Contact: Jamie Vaughan Trout Unlimited, Inc. Rogue River Home Rivers Initiative Project Coordinator 312-391-4760 What’s “bugging” you in our streams? In many cases we think bugs are a nuisance, but bugs in a stream can be very useful. Stream insects are a good measure of water quality. Unlike fish, stream insects cannot move around much so they are less able to escape the effects of sediment and other pollutants that diminish water quality. Stream insects can also be easily identified. Trout Unlimited National and Michigan Trout Unlimited will be holding a Stream Insect Monitoring Event on Saturday, May 6, 2017 from 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. at the Rockford Community Cabin - 220 North Monroe Street in Rockford. Volunteers will be assigned to a monitoring group with a team leader. Each group will collect and identify insects from different stream sites in the Rogue River watershed. You don’t need any experience with stream insects to participate and all ages are welcome. What will you need? Please RSVP to Jamie Vaughan at jvaughan@tu.org or 312-391-4760...
