Volunteer Water Bug Collection

Join the MACC and ODCMG to collect water bugs from 7 local streams on September 21 from 1-4pm. The data you collect will help us determine our area’s water quality! RSVP to 616-395-2688  or culstad@the-macc.org

During our collections, we examine many types of bugs present in a stream to get a general idea of the health of that stream. Most water bugs live among rocks, under logs or in leaf packs, making them relatively easy collect with a net. The MACC partners with the Outdoor Discovery Center Macatawa Greenway to monitor these bugs at 7 locations in the Macatawa Watershed twice a year.
