Grand Canyon Monitoring and Research Center
|Presented By||United States Geologic Survey|
|Goal||Track Colorado River emergent insect populations|
|Task||Collect samples of adult life stages of aquatic insects|
|Where||Colorado River, Glen Canyon, Arizona|
Collecting samples of aquatic insects from the remote Grand Canyon segment of the Colorado River is challenging and extremely expensive. We seek citizen scientists to help us collect samples of the adult life stages of aquatic insects that are emerging from the Colorado River in Grand Canyon using simple light traps that are set out each night in camp. We will provide sampling gear and notebooks.
