River Roundup – Ann Arbor Area

October 1 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

Join a small team of your friends, family, and other volunteers to collect bugs from streams across the watershed! Knowing the types of bugs that live in our streams helps us understand how healthy the river system is, which areas are healthiest, and where we need to focus our restoration efforts to improve water quality.
River Roundup thumbs up Oct 2020You will visit two sites at different locations across the watershed. At each site, you search through stones, leaves and sediment to find bugs in their natural habitat. All teams include experienced volunteers who have been trained in sample collection, and only trained volunteers go in the water. All team members should dress to be comfortable outside for a few hours. Children are welcome to attend with an adult. Registration required!
HRWC welcomes folks of all abilities to our events! A few of our River Roundup sites are accessible to those who use mobility devices or have other mobility disabilities. Please contact Jason Frenzel ahead of the event to discuss options.
A note about location: When you sign up, we’ll make sure to get your email so we can send you location details when we have arranged them. Thank you!
