10:00am-12:00pm Nature-based Field Trip: Life in a Stream

October 16, 2020—10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Sliding Scale

Streams are an excellent place for the science of discovery and investigation. The critters who make their home in the stream demonstrate a beautiful web of life, from algae and microscopic organisms, to insect larvae and amphibians. We’ll begin at the Hitchcock Center and use our limnology lab tools to practice techniques for observing small aquatic creatures and learning about their unique life cycles and adaptations. We’ll then head to the Fort River at Groff park, where we will collect and observe several varieties of invertebrates that depend on this habitat.
