Find insects, crayfish and other small river creatures as a part of the River Roundup!
Join a small team with your friends and family for a unique activity and (hopefully) some time in gorgeous spring weather! Collect a sample of the bugs and other creatures that live in our streams. Like canaries in a coal mine, these creatures indicate the health of our creeks and rivers. In healthy places, the amount of life in these fresh water systems is amazing!
All volunteers first meet in Ann Arbor, and then trained volunteer leaders take you to two stream sites, where you help them search through stones, leaves, and sediment. Only trained volunteers go in the water. Dress to be in the field for a couple hours. You must register early to participate.
Children are welcome to attend with an adult.
