Our streams, rivers and lakes contain millions of tiny creatures that break down and process the matter that can be found within these aquatic systems.  These “bugs” are essential to a healthy system and are great indicators of stream health.  This will be a continuation of the riparian roundup we conducted in May.  We will be able to compare the results to see what has changed between seasons and also discuss how the results from our Stream Doctor measurements may be effecting the bugs.

Key topics – stream ecology, macroinvertebrate life, indicator species

Our science based homeschool classes are built to enhance homeschool curriculum with some real, on-the-ground experience with nature and the world around us.  We will even let you know which science standards fit our classes and how to extend the lessons beyond your time with us.  So come join us because learning is just a little better outside!


What to Wear

We will be getting wet!  Wear boots or water shoes if you can.  Students without boots or who do not want to get into the water will still be able to participate.


Douglas County parks do require a parking fee.  The O.C. Brown parking pass is $4/day or Douglas County parking pass is $30/year.
