Wading for Water Sticks
|Goal||Help researchers learn about aquatic insects, Water Sticks!|
|Task||Spot, record, share sightings of Water Sticks.|
|Where||North Carolina, United States of America North Carolina|
Prepare to get wet and muddy for science! We're looking for citizen scientists in North Carolina to help us learn more about the large, charismatic aquatic insects known as water sticks.
Simply find a body of water in your area, follow the protocol, and submit your data! We'll teach you how to identify the water sticks you find and how to cheaply build any equipment you don't already have (you'll have most of it). And if you don't find anything in the body of water you choose, no problem! Every bit of information helps and anything you can share is useful. With YOUR help, we can discover more about the seasonality, habitat preferences, and distribution of water sticks - together!
