Explore life underwater as we investigate aquatic insects and their connection to the health of our streams. Dr. Ken Belt will present, “Urbanization in the 1800’s Stream Ecology” which will follow the history and evolution of an urban reservoir and its watershed, the legacies of pollution, and a look at live aquatic insects from urban and forested watersheds. Afterwards, we will investigate a nearby stream, take a close-up look at live aquatic insects, and discuss our findings. This workshop will give you a great chance to see some aquatic insects under a microscope and learn how to identify some of the common local groups.
