Join Us for a Winter Stonefly Search!
On January 26th we'll be at Shiatown Park in search of these special critters! No experience or equipment needed, just dress appropriately for the weather. Children are welcome if they are participating with an adult. Not all participants will go in the river, some will be searching through collection samples on the riverbank. It's a fun and unique winter activity that you won't want to miss!
These underwater creatures elude most predators by growing during the winter months when most fish are more sluggish. They live only in good quality streams so searching for them tells us about the quality in the river and its streams.
