Learn from the Scientists – Celebrate World Wetlands Day 2019 with us along the Nabukavesi Stream – 2 February 2019

Join us as we check in on our friends who live in the Nabukavesi Stream! Freshwater macroinvertebrate scientist Bindiya Rashni will lead another Meandering Mates Hunt to see how the critters that live in the stream have been doing since we last visited in February.
We’ll use the Traffic Light Bio-indicator designed by Bindiya to assess the health of the stream based on the species composition of macro-invertebrates in it.

Don’t worry if you’ve never gone meandering with Bindiya before! She will explain the “rock wash method” that makes it easy to find the critters who live in the stream, such as juvenile stages of damselflies, dragonflies, caddisflies, mayflies, aquatic moths, and more. These animals have ecological importance and serve as bio-indicators for a healthy stream.

All equipment will be provided. Please bring your own food and drinks for a picnic at the end of the walk. Don’t forget to bring something so you can swim in the pools of the three-tiered waterfall there!
