Toms Creek Macro Invertebrate Count - Saturday, April 1st - 12:30 pm - Strawberry Hill Nature Preserve
It has been a few years since our last in person gathering - for any purpose! But Friends of Toms Creek is alive and well and has been busy! One month from today - Saturday, April 1st - we will count macro invertebrates (water critters) from Toms Creek.
This was done twice yearly for many years but we took a break on the citizen science effort during Covid and had the count done by a professional in the interim. "Macros" can be seen by the naked and eye and are excellent indicators of the health of a stream. We are asking for volunteers to help with the count this year. All you need are good eyes (or good glasses), willing hands and the ability to match the critters to charts that are provided.
All the samples and equipment will be provided courtesy of Watershed Alliance of Adams County. We are happy to welcome children as well - supervised by an adult. If you could please RSVP, we would like to get a headcount on volunteer numbers! Many thanks and look forward to seeing you at Strawberry Hill Nature Preserve on April 1st at 12:30!
