We got our stream!

We’ve been assigned our stream for monitoring – it’s in Eudora Park in Vienna VA!  The stream is part of the Difficult Run watershed that eventually feeds to the Potomac River and then the Chesapeake Bay.  It’s a beautiful spot off the hike-and-bike trail; a small stream with good flow that provides oxygen for all the little critters.  4 times per year we’ll be invading thChristmas 1e stream (costumes optional) to check for invertebrates and evaluate the health of the stream.  Once we have all of our equipment (waders, nets, trays, tweezers, etc), our first survey will be in July or August.  We’ll keep you posted!
