Upcoming Audubon Naturalist Society classes: Introduction to Stream Science

Introduction to Stream Science

Classroom Session: Healthy Stream Biology
$15 ANS members/$25 non-members
Section C: Tuesday, June 5 (7-9:30 pm)
Woodend Sanctuary, Chevy Chase, MD

In the classroom, we will explore how “benthic macroinvertebrates” — organisms that live in the bottom of our streams – help us assess a stream’s health. We will learn how to identify these organisms to the taxonomic level of order through a PowerPoint presentation and by examining preserved specimens in a hands-on session with microscopes.

Section B: Saturday, June 9 (9:30 am – 12 pm)
Ten Mile Creek, Boyds, MD
In the field workshop, we will visit a healthy stream to practice monitoring techniques and to collect and identify the benthic macroinvertebrates we find.
