Macroinvertebrate Monitoring

How healthy are our local watersheds? How are humans helping or harming local rivers? How do macroinvertebrates help reveal the health of local rivers? A classroom lesson will introduce these topics as well as ecological services that rivers provide.  A follow up field trip will engage students in data collecting in a local ecosystem using the Ipswich River Watershed Association's river monitoring protocol.
