Volunteers will learn to identify macroinvertebrates and will collect samples from a stream. Sample collection methods and habitat types are reviewed, and the rocky bottom and muddy bottom methods for collection sampling are demonstrated. The workshop participants will process the collection, complete the SC AAS data form and tally the macroinvertebrate water quality index value to assign the rating for the health of the stream.
Bring a lunch and be prepared to get in the water. Might be cold :)
