Rock River Archaeology Society Presents “Is the stream, river or lake healthy”
March 18, 2020 @ 6:30 PMFree
Rock River Archaeology Society Presents Program on March 18th.
Is the Stream, River or Lake Healthy?
A Program “Ecological Effect of Prehistoric Caddis Fly Larvae and the Health of Steam’s and River’s Water Quality” will be presented by Bruce Markert, a member of the Rock River Archaeological Society. Bruce will be doing a program on aquatic organisms that live on the bottom of rivers, streams and lakes. Bruce will have the audience looking at two watersheds – the Milwaukee and the Rock River systems.
Bruce will be bringing not only his equipment that he uses for this research, but also samples with the live organisms in them for everyone to see. It will be a fun night to view an environment that few people know exists. An environment that demonstrates the importance and relationship between water and organisms that live on the bottom of rivers, streams and lakes will be brought to life.
Mr. Markert will share with the audience how he came to be doing this work. It certainly is not everyone who inters a stream, river or lake and looks for what is living at the bottom.
The program will be presented at the Horicon Marsh Education and Visitor Center, N7725 Hwy 28, Horicon, WI. 53032. The program begins at 6:30 PM and guests coming can park in the parking lot of the Center and enter through the front doors from 6:00 to 6:30 PM. The doors on the upper level lock at 6:30 PM but lower level doors are open from 5:45 PM until the evening is over. Refreshments are served by the Rock River Archaeological Society to all who attend. The program is FREE.
