Kicking for Macros

Finding macros in Woodcock Creek can be lots of fun for creek campers. In order to collect the macros two people hold the net in the water placing flat rocks on the bottom so no macros can get past the net. The other person performs the creeker's shuffle in order to stir up all the macros on the bottom of the creek and push them into the net. Then the net is taken to shore where the campers sort through the contents and pick out the living macros and place them in a white tray. Once the macros are found, we identify the different species and count how many of each.
