Roswell Macroinvertebrate Monitoring Workshop

Stream macroinvertebrates (insects, mollusks, and crustaceans) are excellent indicators of the condition of both water quality and habitat. This workshop will focus on macroinvertebrate collection techniques and identification; in other words, catching cool animals! Volunteers who identify the macroinvertebrates with 90%accuracy and pass the written test with a score of 80% or better will be certified to conduct macroinvertebrate monitoring and can “adopt” a section of a local stream.

This training consists of two sessions. The virtual classroom session will be Wednesday, February 16, at 6:30 PM and will last 1.5-2 hours. The field demonstration and test portion will be Saturday, March 26 at streamside location within Roswell to be determined.
