Stream Explorers Survey Training - Webinar Part 1

Free
Calendar Next available session starts Jul 29, 2020 at 7 pm

This is Part 1 of a 3-part training. Please register for EACH training session you will be attending. (Parts 1 and 2 are webinars; Part 3 is an optional in-person training.)

Location: Online via Zoom - Webinar link will be emailed day prior 

Do you like to explore?  Walk through streams?  Care about water quality?  If so, we have a wonderful new opportunity for you! The Lakes Environmental Association and the Portland Water District are teaming up with Maine Audubon and the Department of Environmental Protection to recruit community scientists that can help survey large aquatic insects (macroinvertebrates) in streams in the Sebago Lake area to help evaluate stream health.  All you need to do is attend two online training sessions on how to find and identify approximately 40 "Least and Most Wanted" aquatic insects that are indicators of stream health, and then visit 1-3 streams between August and October.  During your survey you will search for the Least and Most Wanted macroinvertebrates,  fill out a data form, and send it in later. 

We will provide training, equipment, maps of the survey streams, and data forms and instructions.  We recommend you conduct your surveys in pairs for safety reasons, but even in this pandemic time, that should be safe to do.

For more information, email conserve@maineaudubon.org or call 207-781-2330, ext. 219.
