UPDATE: Due to the coronavirus outbreak we have canceled this event.

Experts train volunteers to find all different aquatic insects.

Want to take your volunteering with Huron River Watershed Council to the next level? Become a sample collector for our next River Roundup, if you’re already a collector take it to the next level sign up for Leadership Training.

Our trained volunteer leaders and collectors are what make our River Roundups great!  If you have already experienced a River Roundup, you should consider training to be a team Leader/Collector.  The training consists of three parts:

Leader Training: The first hour we will discuss the river system, hydrology, and general HRWC information.

Bug Show: Learn about all the bugs– where they live, what they eat and how healthy the ecosystem is depending on what insects we find.

Collector Training: We will carpool to a nearby site and practice collection techniques in the stream to thoroughly search for bugs in all kinds of habitats.

Qualifications: You only need to have experienced a Roundup or Stonefly Search before becoming a Leader/Collector. Teachers who want to learn collecting techniques for classroom use are welcome to join us with permission from Jason: email jfrenzel@hrwc.org.

WHEN: Due to COVID-19, we have canceled this training until further notice. If  you have been a leader in the past and want to serve again, please contact Jason for upcoming events in case we have openings.
WHERE: HRWC Office, New Center, 1100 N. Main Street, Ann Arbor, MI
