This morning we went down stream of the Woodcock Creek Lake. After the water testing activity we went into the water for the first time. In there we needed to catch macro invertebrates. How did we do it? Two people held a kick net while the others make the "river dance" to scare the invertebrates into the net. After a few minutes we took the net out of the water and put it on a bench so we could look and examine what we had caught. We picked the animals and put them in a tub with clear water. We saw hundreds of worms, crayfishes, nymphs, etc...
We had lots of fun!
