Real science that’s fun for all ages!
Join a small team of your friends, family, and other interesting volunteers. Collect samples of bugs and other creatures that live in our streams. These insects tell us how healthy the river system is, where the healthier areas are, and where we need to focus our restoration efforts.
Volunteers meet in Ann Arbor* and then trained volunteer leaders take you to two stream sites. At these sites, you help search through stones, leaves, and sediment to find the insects in their homes. Only trained volunteers go in the water. Dress to be in the field for a couple hours. Children are welcome to attend with an adult. You must register early to be assigned to a team.
|WHERE||Meet at the HRWC office* in Ann Arbor (1100 N Main Street). Then carpool to two streams in Livingston, Oakland, Wayne and/or Washtenaw Counties.|
|WHEN:||The Spring 2021 all outdoor (social-distance, masked, reduced numbers) event happened and was a success, thanks to our stellar volunteers. Here are some pictures and a quick recap.|
