Waterwatch Program - Waterbug (Alt Method) Census

Community session on the Merri Creek.

Macroinvertebrates (water bugs) are very important for the health of the waterway. They
are a key part of the food chain and can tell us about the health of the ecosystem.

The session will cover:

  • sampling and collecting of waterbugs
  • identifying live waterbugs to Family level and sometimes beyond!
  • Collecting information that will be part of the annual National Waterbug Blitz!
  • Lunch provided

*Please note: previous experience with macroinvertebrate identification is ideal (basic is fine).
