Benthics are tiny aquatic invertebrates who act as indicators of lake health. On Saturday we’ll collect buckets of matter from the lake bottom. Then the Technician will sample them in petri dishes & the fun begins. Collectors catch the “bugs” with tweezers or plastic pipettes. The variety & number are logged. Kids will get tickets for collecting & will be able to exchange them for prizes. We’ll supply snacks in the morning & lunch with drinks throughout the day.
