Join USRC volunteer Citizen Scientists for Riverwatch macroinvertebrate species monitoring this Saturday, June 30 at the Sangamon River Forest Preserve.

We’ll be identifying and annotating the site and collecting macroinvertebrate species for later identification. Volunteers will enter the river to take measurements and sample for macroinvertebrates. Volunteers should wear shoes and clothes suitable for getting soaked and muddy. Typically, at least one volunteer has “banker” duties, which means they stay on the bank and don’t enter the river.

We hope to see you there.
