Macroinvertebrates!

Saturday, May 21

9am

Dragonfly larva (640x480)

Join us at the Maine Lake Science Center on Willet Road for a morning of exploration of Stevens Brook and Willet Brook.  We will be looking for macroinvertebrates: small insect life that live in the water, like baby dragonflies! Macroinvertebrates start their lives in streams and ponds and are an important part of these ecosystems.  We will collect, identify and release the insect nymphs and learn about stream ecology and stream health right here in our backyard!  Join us for this exciting and engaging morning in Pondicherry Park. Please bring water, a snack, appropriate footwear and whatever you use to keep the bugs off of you! Free for LEA members, $5 non-members. Registration is not required but please let us know if you are planning on coming so we have enough supplies!  FYI: alanna@leamaine.org.
