Auburn Heights Preserve Field Trip

Insect Detectives

Grade Level: 5-6
Program Length: 1 hour

Insects can tell us a lot about the health of an aquatic system. During this program, students explore the Red Clay Creek and examine the varieties of aquatic larvae present in the water. Using insect ID resources, they will track the health of the water as indicated by the species of insects found, and learn about the creek's industrial past, the role insects play in ecosystems, and how to help keep our water clean.

Fee: $ per student
