“Sammy the Salmon”

425-316-8592

What is a watershed? The large area of land around a stream that drains to that stream.

What is a riparian zone? The area of vegetation next to a stream that affects the ecology of that stream. 

What are benthic macroinvertebrates? Aquatic life with no spines that you can see without a microscope living on the bottom of streams. 

Can I see how they are linked together with fish? Look at Fresh Waters Flowing from the Video Section of the Nature Store. Enjoy - its free!

Is there a light hearted introduction on how to inventory and monitor streams?  Get the Streamkeeper starring Bill Nye the Science Guy just released on DVD!
