Macro Mania!

A great time was had by all this past Thursday at our Macro Mania! event at White Bridge Road!

Participants learned about scientific sampling methods and explored the ecology of aquatic macroinvertebrates hands on! We observed over 15 taxa, including a HUGE hellgrammite (Eastern Dobsonfly) larva that was the highlight of the night!

The presence of these and other indicator species like stoneflies and water pennies tell us that Jacobs Creek is overall quite healthy at this site!

JCWA was able to purchase new sampling equipment through a PA DEP Environmental Education Grant received earlier this year!
