Macroinvertebrate sampling

The Nature Conservancy is hosting its 9th annual macroinvertebrate sampling and training program to monitor the health of the Saugatuck River system, and volunteers may participate.

This a paragraph with some italicized text some bold text and link to external site set to open in new tab/window.

Two sessions scheduled

The first part of the morning will be an indoor training on macroinvertebrates and the sampling method. Volunteers will then break into teams and go out to a river site to take their sample. Staff will move from site to site to offer assistance in the identification of the different organisms.

The first training and sampling event will begin 9 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 20, at the Weston Public Library, 56 Norfield Road, Weston, then head to sampling sites along the Saugatuck River.

The second even is 9 a.m. Sunday, Oct. 21, in the Community Room at the Redding Community Center, 37 Lonetown Road, Redding (behind Redding Elementary School), then at sampling sites along the Saugatuck River

Those who attend should take a bag lunch and a change of clothes.  Dress for the weather and to go in the water (waders or water shoes and clothes you don’t mind getting wet).  Sunscreen and bug spray are also recommended. Some other things you might want to bring:  a ground cloth or cushion to sit on the ground and sort your samples, a towel in case you get wet and plastic zip-top bag(s) for phone or other items.
