Bad River Watershed Association's Macroinvertebrate Volunteer Training

  • Town of Morse GArage 402 2nd Avenue Mellen, WI, 54546 United States (map)

The Bad River Watershed Association is looking for volunteers to participate in aquatic macroinvertebrate (bug) monitoring this spring. With your help, they can collect important and useful information about stream health in the watersheds surrounding the Chequamegon Bay (from Red Cliff to Hurley).  

You'll enjoy FREE LUNCH, then venture outside to get your feet wet in the creek and practice the field methods. Please wear comfortable clothing, and bring a change of clothes if you think you might get wet! We will have some waders to use, but it is recommended participants bring their own if they have them.
