Aquatic macroinvertebrates are an important indicator of the health of our local stream. These fascinating underwater critters can be categorized by families, feeding groups, and their sensitivity to water pollution. This presentation will cover basic aquatic macroinvertebrate identification along with an overview of their feeding groups and their use in determining water quality. Join Forests Projects Coordinator, Rebecca Lauver, to get a close up look at the organisms that occupy our local streams!
