http://www.therouge.org/our-work/volunteer/benthic-macroinvertebrate-sampling Do you ever wonder about what lives in the river besides fish and turtles? Come to one of our Rouge River Bug Hunts and see for yourself the amazing variety of aquatic insects, crayfish, snails and clams (technically known as benthic macroinvertebrates: animals without a backbone that live in the streambed) that make up the bottom of the river food chain. Volunteers visit sites throughout the headwaters of the watershed and search for mayflies, stoneflies and other aquatic invertebrates. The presence or absence of these streambed creatures reflects the quality of the water and habitat. We meet at Schoolcraft College where you will meet the rest of your team and head to two sites along the river - once there, trained team leaders get in the river to collect samples while you search through sampling trays on the banks for the insects. Registration is required by September 30: https://docs.google.com/a/therouge.org/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSeywq0gymbMBzlfDH8IbnR2sFXq8NiacEyl3z8k1H4l4bJKCQ/viewform
