River Critters and Pond Pals – Stream Exploration

June 11 @ 5:00 pm - 6:15 pm

Have you ever seen a dragonfly in the winter? How about a mayfly? Where do these animals go once it turns cold, and where do they come from when it starts to warm up? Freshwater macroinvertebrates can tell us many important features about their habitat. They are storytellers about the health of the ecosystem. Are there pollutants in the water? Let’s ask the leeches. Do these waters support lots of species? Let’s ask the caddisfly.

Join HAWK and Dr. Erika Young, the Coastal and Marine Education Specialist for North Carolina Sea Grant, for a special hands-on stream exploration opportunity for kids followed by a pizza dinner! Please register now as spots are limited! There will be many specimens to observe, a scientific key to identify species, and a game to match the larval form to the adult form. Registration is required for this evening of adventurous fun at the Matthews Community Center.
