Explore the fascinating life of Walton Pond and Poplar Swamp Brook with the Farmington River Watershed Association. Spend the morning pond-side and wading in the brook to observe, identify, and marvel at the life histories and ecology of insects and other invertebrates that inhabit still and flowing waters. Learn how and why we use aquatic insects in the FRWA biomonitoring program to monitor water quality throughout the Watershed.
Program open to all ages, children must be accompanied by adult. Rain or shine, dress for the weather and wear appropriate footwear to wade into the water (water shoes, old sneakers, or waders). Advance registration is required. Please contact FRWA at 860-658-4442 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to register.
