The Macros of Downstream Woodcock

In downstream Woodcock creek, there are many diverse creatures to be found. Many of them, however, cannot be seen. These are often aquatic worms and larvae of creatures, as well as nymphs and crayfish (adults and young). These critters often serve as bio-indicators for things like the amount of pollution in the water.

Today (as well as identification of macros, which are creatures that do not need to be seen with a microscope) we tested features of the water, like pH, dissolved solids, and temperature.
