Stream Sampling Demonstration
May 21, 2023 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm
If you love aquatic creatures and science, we have an exciting opportunity to share. Highland will host the Rivanna Conservation Alliance (RCA) on Sunday, May 21, from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. as they conduct a benthic macroinvertebrate sampling demonstration along Massey Creek, which flows adjacent to a portion of the South Pasture Loop of the Highland Rustic Trails. Representatives from RCA will be conducting a biological sample, looking for the different types of macroinvertebrates that call this stream home. This will be a drop-in event and anyone is welcome to attend, ask questions, and see how RCA uses these animals to assess stream health. This event is free, appropriate for all ages, and open to the public.
