River Roundup – Huron River 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.
Join a small team of your friends, family, and other volunteers to collect bugs from streams across the watershed!
Meet your team onsite at the first of two sampling locations. One person will arrive with all of the equipment you need to get started. At each site, you search through stones, leaves, and sediment to find bugs in their natural habitat.
Each team includes an experienced volunteer who has been trained in sample collection. Only trained volunteers go in the water to collect the samples. Dress to be comfortable outside for a few hours. Children are welcome to attend with an adult. You must register early to be assigned to a team!
