Macroinvertebrate Identification, Count, and Categorization (sampled 11 Jul 2013) by Elijah Rogan-Kelly
Day Three: Due to heavy rains the night before, the creek was moderately overflowed with some heavy rapids, making it difficult to collect samples. However, the few organisms that were gathered it could be observed that the creek was healthy and could support sensitive benthic invertebrates. The two samples collected included two mayflies and six clams.
Group 1 (sensitive) Group 2 (moderately sensitive)
