Spring 2021 Macroinvertebrate Monitoring
May 27, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
The MACC and ODC Network will conduct macroinvertebrate monitoring on May 27. Macroinvertebrates are small critters without a backbone that live in streams. They are indicators of water quality and by tracking their populations in our streams, we get a general sense of stream health. They include fly larvae, dragonfly and damselfly larvae, aquatic worms, and small crustaceans. We monitor 7 locations throughout the watershed. Volunteers will meet MACC and ODC Network staff at Adams Street Landing where we will hand out equipment and split into teams. Each team will head out to their site(s) from there. All equipment will be provided, but volunteers should dress appropriately to get wet and/or muddy. Due to COVID, the number of volunteers is limited and we ask that you wear a mask when appropriate social distancing cannot be maintained. All volunteers will be asked to fill out a health screening form prior to participation. You can view a copy here.
