Walk-in (all ages) Dive into the wet and wonderful world of aquatic ecosystems to discover macroinvertebrates. These small organisms live in our ponds and rivers. We'll identify different types and learn their unique behaviors: some spend their whole lives in water, while others are underwater part of their life and them transform to live out of the water. Discover how the mighty macros can teach us important lessons about water quality and what we can do to help them thrive.
