Leaves & Streams: Leaf Pack Citizen Science Project
July 21, 2016 @ 9:00 am - July 22, 2016 @ 4:00 pm UTC-6$95.00 – $145.00
Colorful leaves make our valley incredibly beautiful every September but that’s not the main purpose of fall foliage?¦ Falling leaves are instrumental in providing organic material that covers the ground or lands in the streams. In this 2-day workshop we will closely examine the leaves that provide critical in-stream environment and major food supply for aquatic organisms from bacteria to mayflies. Come and learn about the Leaf Pack Citizen Science project, which utilizes tools developed by scientists to collect aquatic organisms, called macroinvertebrates, and use that information to examine the health of a stream.
