Would you like to explore streams in Geauga County and learn about their water chemistry and biology this summer? What about investigating water quality by searching for aquatic critters such as crayfish, dragonflies, water pennies, and caddisflies which live in our local streams? Then grab your water shoes and join the Millennium Youth Conservationists (MYC) team! In collaboration with the ODNR Scenic Rivers Program we will use kick seines, sediment sticks, phosphorus test kits, and more to analyze the health of area streams and rivers while providing official stream data to ODNR.
All ages are welcome! Join us for one outing or for all as we contribute data to the Ohio’s Scenic Rivers Program and celebrate its 50th year!! The adventure begins in June and concludes in August. It is free and only twice a month on Thursday. You may Contact Colleen Sharp with the Geauga Soil and Water Conservation District by phone (440)834-1122 ext. 6 or email [email protected] for more information.
