River Guardians is back this October to see what's under the surface of the Kalamazoo River Watershed. Volunteers will join KNC staff and volunteer leaders to sample macroinvertebrates (water bugs) at 4 sites within the watershed. Teams will bring their samples back to the lab to identify their catch under microscopes and enjoy a pizza lunch. Information gathered by volunteers will inform researchers on the quality of the water at each sampling site so that the health of the water might be maintained and improved. This is a free event, although registration is required.

This event will be held at Merrill Park in Comstock Township.
