Another great day of stream training to learn about Low Gradient, Muddy Bottom streams down in Wharton State Forest along the Mullica!

Ambassadors learned all about muddy bottom macros and habitat parameters. They even found a #catfish and an extra large #dragonfly nymph! What a great way to spend the last day of #summer!

Did you know that one of the stream characteristics that ambassadors measure is #width?

To measure width ambassadors use a transect tape to measure the distance from one bank to the other. Width is importnant to measure becasue it helps paint a picture of the overall stream health.

We’re counting down the days until the next term of service starts! Interested in collaborating with one of our future Watershed Ambassadors? Visit our website for contact information for each incoming ambassador: https://www.nj.gov/dep/wms/bears/americorps.htm

Watershed Ambassadors have their hands in all sorts of projects, including tree plantings in riparian zones!

Trees are important for riparian zones becasue they act as a buffer. Their roots hold the soil together to prevent erosion and they help filter out pollution!

WOW! Look at this macro!

One of the primary responsibilities of the Watershed Ambassadors is to perform stream assessments, including identification of benthic macroinvertebrates! Ambassadors can determine stream health based on the different macros that are found, along with the stream habitat, because different macros have different pollution tollerances.
