Available now to pick up free of charge from the Rural Futures Center are school based Macroinvertebrate Investigation Kits. Each kit will equip a class of max 30 students to head down to the creek to check out what lives in our fresh water.
The kit includes a teacher’s guide worksheets and record sheet templates with a handy web site list. Plus magnifiers, collection nets, ID field guides plus a lot more. All you need to add is some enthusiastic students, a willing to have fun and of course a creek!
If you prefer to have one of the enthusiastic and knowledgeable Landcare Staff to bring the kit to you and conduct the macroinvertebrate session then that is also possible.
The cost for a session (2 hours) with a water bug and freshwater specialist is only $150.
