Residents Learn about Insects to Determine Health of River

Tuesday, July 17, 2018



Kristine Rogers, Education Specialist for the SCMUA-Wallkill River Watershed Management Group, recently hosted a water quality monitoring day for the general public at the Wallkill River National Wildlife Refuge in Sussex, NJ. Kristine gave a presentation about aquatic insects (macroinvertebrates) and the role they play in helping people determine how clean or polluted local waterways are. Participants then had a chance to examine live insects collected from the Wallkill River.
