River Critters and Pond Pals – Stream Ecosystem Presentation (Matthews)

June 11, 2024 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Have you ever seen a dragonfly in the winter? How about a mayfly? Where do these animals go once it turns cold, and where do they come from when it starts to warm up? Examining freshwater macroinvertebrates can reveal many important features about their habitat. They are storytellers about the health of an ecosystem. Are there pollutants in the water? Let’s ask the leeches. Do these waters support lots of species? Let’s ask the caddisfly.

Join HAWK and Dr. Erika Young, the Coastal and Marine Education Specialist for North Carolina Sea Grant, for a stream-based educational event. There will be many specimens to observe and a scientific key to identify species available for review.
