Aquatic Critters Outing

April 27 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

Join Environmental Educator Leah Purvis in this free event to learn about the incredible creatures that live in the Haw River! You will learn how to collect and identify fish and macroinvertebrates, and understand how these organisms can tell us about the health of the river. Please wear pants and shoes you won’t mind getting wet and dirty! Old tennis shoes, rubber boots, or waders are recommended. We will walk about a quarter of a mile total to the sampling site. All sampling materials will be provided, but feel free to bring your own net if desired!

Group size is limited to 20 participants. Pre-registration is required. Sign up at this link:  https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1AyyDVLXozjH3-4WFyxRYIeoWvb2HAsj94OrV23fNQkY/viewform?edit_requested=true
