For the next few months, the NBC Watershed Explorers will be focusing on benthic macroinvertebrates. These tiny creatures with no bones are extremely important to scientists that are studying water quality. Macroinvertebrates can tell scientists about the health of local watersheds.

In addition to our lessons this month all critter groups will create their own macroinvertebrate poster. Groups will present these posters in April and one group from each school will present at the NBC Watershed Explorer conference at Goddard Park in May. These posters educate fellow Watershed Explorers about different macroinvertebrates. 

Watershed Explorers can get all the information they need by clicking the green critter projects button at the top of this page. Happy researching Watershed Explorers.
