Freshwater Invertebrates – Efts Event

August 15 @ 1:00 PM 3:00 PM

EFTS EVENT – This event is for youth aged 12-15. See here for more information.

Come take a closer look at an underwater world full of alien-like creatures! Guest leader Nancy Serediak will take us on a journey into the world of freshwater macro-invertebrates. We will net for these tiny critters in the McIntyre River at Lakehead University, practice identifying what we find, and start thinking about the roles different inverts play in their ecosystems and what these bioindicators tell us about the health of their environment.

Bring your rubber boots and get ready to get your hands wet!
