Here is a great activity for the whole family – measure the health of a stream near you by looking for the small insects that live in it. JDCF broadcast a new Facebook Live program on stream ecology where Jess Carryer, our Outreach and Education Manager, showed us how to do a simple stream survey. The fact sheets that Jess references for you to use in your survey can be found here: Illinois River Watch Network/Stream Discovery Resources.
Join us on Facebook every Thursday morning at 10:00 AM for another Facebook Live. If you do not follow JDCF on Facebook, you can do so here. Simply click ‘like’ and ‘following’ in the left-hand corner just below the cover photo.
