Event description

Description

Twin Willows Ranch in conjunction with the High Plains Grassland Alliance invites you to a Beaver Pond Ecology Workshop. The workshop will be lead by Rich Schrader of River Source. Rich will be giving us an hands-on introduction to beaver pond water quality and the aquatic insects, fish, and amphibians found in our northern New
Mexico High Plains beaver ponds.

The day will consist of a classroom discussion of the basic elements that make for quality pond habitat, hands-on sampling of the insects, fish, and amphibians that we find in the beaver ponds, ID of these critters and release back to the pond, and finally a more indepth look at aquatic insect adaptation, behavior, and morphology.
