Is Your Stream Healthy? Let's Count Some Critters
Learn why its important to keep our streams and creeks healthy. In this program, a naturalist from Hidden Pond will explain how aquatic macroinvertebrates (bugs) are used to measure the health of a stream. We'll learn to identify some of these critters and then play a game to simulate a catch in the stream. Participants will need to prepare supplies beforehand, including printing and assembling paper game cubes (template and instructions provided upon registration). This program uses Zoom to connect participants. Participation is limited to 15 households for personal interaction with the naturalist.
