Friends of the Rouge Spring Bug Hunt - April 20

Become a Rouge Community Scientist!
Do you ever wonder about what lives in the river besides fish and turtles?
Come to our 2024 Spring Bug Hunt and see for yourself the amazing variety of critters that make up the
bottom of the river food chain. Volunteers will be divided into teams prior to arrival,
and then visit two sites throughout the headwaters of the Rouge watershed and
search for aquatic invertebrates. The presence or absence of these streambed creatures
gives us valuable data on the quality of the river water and overall habitat.
