Stream Explorer In-Person Training – Gardiner

Location: Selene’s Fly Shop, 279 Water St, Gardiner

Date & Time: Thursday, May 16, 5:30-7:30 pm

Price: Free

Join the Stream Explorers program and become a community scientist surveying for large aquatic insects (macroinvertebrates) in streams in Maine! All you need to do is attend this in-person training OR watch two online training sessions on how to find and identify approximately 40 “Least and Most Wanted” aquatic insects that are indicators of stream health, and then visit one to three streams between May and October.

During your survey you will search for the Least and Most Wanted macroinvertebrates and send in the collected data. We will provide training, equipment, maps of the survey streams, and data forms and instructions. We recommend you conduct your surveys in pairs for safety reasons and ease of data collection.

Please note you are registering for an IN PERSON training in Gardiner. Due to capacity, there are a limited number of spaces available. If you are unable to sign up, please email to be placed on the waitlist. Unable to make it in person? Don’t worry, you can still get involved! Recordings of our online trainings are available on our Stream Explorers web page.
