Tuesdays on the Trail: Macroinvertebrates – Starting Life Underwater

June 6, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am

Did you know that many insects start their lives in the water?  It’s true! While in their larval stage, many insects make their homes in streams, ponds, and lakes. During this Tuesday on the Trail, we’ll be learning about these critters, also known as macroinvertebrates.  Naturalist Lynne Weninegar will lead our exploration of Fagan Creek at the Cleermont Trailhead of the Monte Sano Nature Preserve.

Cost: FREE but only available for Land Trust members at the Trailblazer (Family) level or above. Not a Land Trust Member? Join today! You can also find additional adventures available for non-members here.
