Stream Sampling Day

Stream Sampling Day on Whychus Creek

 

Thanks to the 28 volunteers and Celeste Mazzacano from CASM Environmental, LLC who came out Saturday to collect macroinvertebrates in Whychus Creek during our annual Stream Sampling Day event, and thanks to Angeline’s Bakery, Bad Wolf Bakery and Bistro, Fearless Baking, and Picky Bars for donating piping hot coffee, delicious baked goods and tasty real food bars to get us through the day! Together we collected 14 samples from 12 sites spanning 24 miles of Whychus Creek, improving our knowledge of how the critters in the stream are responding to restoration. We couldn’t do it without you! If you missed Stream Sampling Day this year but would like to join us next year, mark your calendar for August 19, 2017.

For information about next year’s event, contact Lauren Mork at (541) 382-6103 x39 or lmork@restorethedeschutes.org.

Check back in January for the report summarizing findings from the day.
