TAP US Summer Workshop

Mud Lake Hike

Rusty Crayfish


Collecting Data
Just wanted to post a few more pictures of the great workshop I attended this past week at Pine Lake (see post below). These are pictures from our hike to Mud Lake which is actually a bog with carnivorous Pitcher Plants. Also included are pictures of the TAP US team collecting biological and chemical data from the Charlotte Creek location at Pine Lake. We collected Macro Invertebrate such as Stoneflies, Dragonflies, Crayfish, Mayflies, Craneflies...just to name a few. There are thousands of living organisms in our streams and creeks and they are essential for healthy, clean stream water. We also spent a day learning about non-native invasive species such as the Rusty Crayfish, Japanese Knotwood and water Milfoil. Can't wait to share all of this information with Riverside classes!
