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 Thursday, May 28th at 10:00 AM for another Facebook Live event that is sponsored by Gabby’s Gifts in Galena, IL. The topic will be Oak Savannas. 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.
