With volunteers and staff, we enter waterways to collect macroinvertebrates (bugs and the like) to monitor our water’s health. It is a fun experience! Who knew wearing waders and getting in nature was so cool?
You don’t have to get into the water or have any experience. Just dress for the weather and walking in forested terrain.
There are three ways to help:
a “Collector” and wear waders to go into the water to collect insects with nets
a “Runner” that stays bank side and take nets and buckets from the “Collectors”
a “Picker” who picks out any insects that are found in the river/stream and places them into a jar for later identification.
Volunteers and staff will meet at the River Point Access in Lawrence (north of the Lawrence Township Hall (411 N Paw Paw St., Lawrence, MI 49064)) at 1:00 PM. We will have beverages and snacks while we discuss where we will be sampling and how to sample. Then we will split up into groups.
