Description

Home School Summer Science Series 2017: Macroinvertebrate Study

June 13 • 10am – 12pm • Macro Lab - Part One

Learn to identify and index these organisms by creating your own field guide to take home. This class will utilize preserved specimens of common macroinvertebrates, which are used to help determine water quality in our streams and rivers. After successfully completing this class, participants will be familiar with 20 different organisms (how to identify them, where in the stream they can be found, and their level of sensitivity to water pollution).

July 7 • 10am – 12pm • Macro Field Investigation - Part Two

This class is intended to utilize the field guide participants created in Part One of this series, but it is not necessary that you participated in that class to attend this one. We will search for macroinvertebrates at a local creek and index our findings to determine the water quality of the stream.

Appropriate for ages 7 and up. Pre-registration is required.

Parents/guardians/teachers must remain on site for the duration of these programs. No drop-offs please.

Separate registration for each program is required.

Part One will take place at the Cobb County Water System Water Quality Laboratory in Marietta.

PartTwo will take place on Nickajack Creek. Directions will be shared once registered.
