Come get wet and have fun discovering more about our local streams!

Free Stream Study, Macroinvertebrate collection and ID Program For Adults

Nature At The Confluence Stream Team programs empower citizens to be part of restoring and protecting our local waters and regional watershed. NATC Stream Teams will be collecting baseline data multiple times over the summer at Turtle and Kelley Creeks.  You can come once or several times to discover what the data will tell us about health of these waterways.

At this workshop we will compare the data we collect today to that from earlier in the summer. We will revisit our leaf packs to see if different larva and organisms inhabit them. How does three months of sun, rain, wind, and human activity affect stream health? What conclusions can we draw about the Rock River basin based on our findings? First time stream monitors are welcome!

  • Bring waders or boots if you have them, waders will also be provided for use.
