Learn about aquatic insect sampling starting at 9 a.m. May 16 at Coweeta Hydrologic Laboratory in Macon County.
You’ll learn what aquatic insects are and why they are important, plus how to use insect data in conjunction with fish data to monitor a stream’s health. This is a project of the Land Trust for the Little Tennessee and David Penrose, who is an aquatic insect expert. Penrose helped develop the metrics and assessment protocols needed to assign bioclassification criteria to streams and rivers.
Participation with field sampling is encouraged, but not required, please dress accordingly.
