Splash into Citizen Science with Stream Monitoring
April 11 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Did you know that the health of your neighborhood stream is vitally important to sustaining diverse wildlife habitat, both locally and along our larger tributaries like the Potomac River and Goose Creek? And that citizen scientists (like you!) can efficiently measure and monitor the health of our local streams by systematically collecting, identifying, and tallying the variety of aquatic macroinvertebrates collected from the stream bottom? Join Loudoun Wildlife Conservancy and Loudoun Soil and Water for a demonstration of how a watershed system operates, and get your feet wet as we conduct a biomonitoring survey of a local stream and identify and tally the amazing creatures we discover. We will also discuss where this data goes, how it is used, and how you can get involved as a Loudoun Wildlife stream monitoring team member. This is a family-friendly event, geared toward those 10 and up. Location TBA in Purcellville. Limit 20. Registration required
You may also want to sign up to receive The Monitor, the new stream monitoring newsletter.
