Stoneflies and Mayflies and Midges. Oh My!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

At the Confluence of stream and lake monitors in March, the stream monitors honed their aquatic insect identification skills.  Participants were also delighted to view videos of some cool stream critters.  Kris Stepenuck, Water Action Volunteers Stream Monitoring Program Director, found these videos in “Bugs of the Underworld: the natural history of aquatic insects” with Ralph and Lisa Cutter.

You too can enjoy a unique journey to life in our streams by viewing these videos:
