Water, bugs and fun!
They are creepy, they are crawly, they live in the water and they have no backbone! They are the aquatic macro-invertebrates, or the big water bugs. So let’s go catch some crayfish, find out what a hellgrammite is or learn what kind of dragonfly just buzzed by your head. There will be activities, presentations, games and more. Be prepared to get wet as some optional activities will take place in the Grand River. This free family event will focus on those species and qualities that make the Grand River unique.
