UUCC Stream Team will monitor Hinkson Creek on March 10

Join the Green Sanctuary Team’s Stream Team in monitoring the health of Hinkson Creek at 1:30 p.m. Saturday, March 10. Meet at the church.

We will be catching and counting macro-invertebrates (like the mayfly shown here) that live in the creek. We will also be measuring stream flow, water temperature, dissolved oxygen, nitrate content, pH level, conductivity, and turbidity.

All ages are welcome to come and do some serious but enjoyable messing in a creek together and discovering what lives there. Wear shoes or boots that allow you to wade in the creek. For questions email Peter Holmes.
