finding micro macros

Today in the stream we found macros on the ground of the river by kick netting. It was a bit hard with all the rocks in the way but many of them lived under the rocks so it made it easier for us to find them. But today the current was strong so it was hard to walk to find a good stop for net to go

after dancing around in the water to find the macros we looked through for all the different species of micros that live there. we found out just how healthy the water is by the animals in it. we freed them back in the water but i still never thought we'd find crayfish and especially as many as we did.
