Jay Cordeiro, Wildlife Conservation Biologist, will introduce participants to the aquatic macroinvertebrate fauna found in fresh water.

Participants will collect samples of aquatic invertebrates and amphibians with nets, sieves and by hand. We will learn to identify, count and record their findings, and discuss the intricate life cycles, food webs, and survival adaptations of these organisms.   Participants should expect to get wet and are asked to bring old sneakers, water shoes, muck boots, shin high or greater.  All other materials will be provided.
