Adopt-A-Stream Macroinvertebrate Monitoring Workshop
Macroinvertebrate Monitoring Workshop for Quality Assurance
Biological Monitoring - 4 hours
Learn how to sample the biological aspects of a stream. The macroinvertebrates (insects, mollusks, & crustaceans) found in a stream are excellent indicators of the condition of both water quality and habitat. This workshop will focus on collection techniques for either rocky or muddy bottom streams and macroinvertebrate identification. A quality assurance test is available at the end of the workshop for those who wish to test their skills. Volunteers who identify the macroinvertebrates with 90% accuracy and pass the written test with a score of 80% or better will be considered a QA/QC volunteer for one year.
Bring a lunch and dress for the weather. This workshop will require some classroom time and some outdoor time. Rain will keep this workshop indoors.
