Benthic macroinvertebrates (a.k.a. water bugs) can be great biological indicators of water quality! Join Partners of Scott County Watersheds and Nahant Marsh Education Center to learn about these organisms and how to catch and identify them.
Participants will enjoy refreshments during an introduction presentation, then practice catching and identifying organisms from the marsh!
While it's not required, we encourage workshop participants to attend the Summer Snapshot on Saturday, July 15th to put these new identification skills to work! Volunteers are needed to collect chemical and biological water quality data; registration for the Summer Snapshot is available at XstreamCleanup.org
No prior experience is necessary, and all ages are welcome to participate.
