Winter Stonefly Search
Ann Arbor, MI
Come join a group of volunteers and experts to search for stoneflies! You will be guided through a stretch of stream or river in search of these little guys. Experienced researchers will educate you on how we determine the health of the stream or river you are visiting. Stoneflies live only in good quality streams and rivers, so this will help tell us about the problems in the water. . Adults and children welcome, but each child must be accompanied by an adult. The event is about 4 hours long and approximately half of that is spent indoors.
