Meandering Mates Hunt

FJ

Join us as we check in on our friends who live in the Nabukavesi Stream! Freshwater macroinvertebrates scientist, Bindiya, will lead our 10th Meandering Mates Hunt to see how the critters or whom she considers to be ‘small buddies’ that live in the stream have been doing since our last visit.  Fun For All Ages – It is our 10th year already!

Main Details

Event Details: Meandering Mates Hunt

Saturday, 10th February 2024, 8.00 am- 12.15 pm

We`ll use the traffic light Bio-indicator designed by Bindiya to assess the health of the stream based on the species composition of macro-invertebrate in it.

Don’t worry if you’ve never gone meandering with Bindiya before! She will explain the “rock wash method” that makes it easy to find the critters who live in the stream, such as juvenile stages of damselflies, dragonflies, caddisflies, mayflies, aquatic moths, and more. These animals have ecological importance and serve as bio-indicators for a healthy stream.

All equipment will be provided. Please bring your own food and drinks for a picnic at the end of the walk. Don’t forget to bring something so you can swim in the pools of the three-tiered waterfall there!

This is a popular activity, so book and pay early to secure a place!
