Discover the fascinating underwater life of our Watershed with FRWA Water Quality Monitoring as we explore Walton Pond and Poplar Swamp Brook at beautiful Winding Trails in Farmington. 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 creatures that inhabit still
and flowing waters. Learn how and why we use aquatic insects in our watershed-wide water quality monitoring.
We will provide nets, buckets and expertise; you need only bring your curious mind. We meet at Nature’s Porch, which is Winding Trails’ beautiful certified Connecticut grown building. We will go outdoors rain or shine. Please dress for the weather and wear
appropriate footwear to wade in shallow water (water shoes, old sneakers, or waders.) This program is open to all ages but children must be accompanied by an adult. Registration is required by 3 days prior to the event; please register through the Winding Trails website: www.windingtrails.org/register/?id=981.
