Stream Monitoring/Insect Collection- Volunteers are needed to help collect insects in local waterways. All materials and equipment necessary are provided. Volunteers have the opportunity to be a "Collector" and wear waders to go into the water to collect insects with nets, to be a "Runner" that stays bank side and take nets and buckets from the "Collectors" to where they are sorted out by the "Picker", who picks out any insects that is found in the river/stream and places them into a jar for later identification. Each role is important and volunteers have the option of what they would like to do at the collection site. No prior knowledge or experience is necessary, Team Leaders are there at each site to assist volunteers.
2017 Dates: Sunday, May 7 (9am-1pm) and Sunday, October 1 (9am-1pm). Volunteers meet at the Lawrence River Park, Lawrence on the Paw Paw River.
