Help Stream Team Stir Things up This Summer: Volunteer to Collect "Stream Bug" Samples

Stream Team is looking for volunteers to stir things up this summer, specifically "stream bugs" in twenty local streams throughout Thurston County. No experience is necessary. A training session for volunteers is offered on June 19 on Tuesday, June 19 and on July 9 from 6 to 9 p.m.

"Stream bugs are the critters that live in the bottom of streams," says Stream Team Coordinator Ann Marie Pearce, "They provide valuable information on water quality and the biological health of streams. They're also fun to collect and examine!"

Stream bug sampling will take place on varying dates and times from late June through early August. People interested in volunteering should contact Ann Marie Pearce at 754-3355, ext. 6857 or via e-mail at pearcea@co.thurston.wa.us
