Wetland Family Day 2022

EcoReach volunteers set up a booth at Jefferson City School’s annual event, “Wetlands Family Day”. The event, designed around the school’s wetland property, brings in organizations to highlight different outdoor activities. 

The activity that EcoReach put together discussed caddisfly. Caddisflies are insects that have aquatic larvae and terrestrial adults. When the insects are in the larvae stage, they create a casing around themselves comprised of debris and silk. Caddisflies are important biological indicators used for accessing stream water quality. Students had the opportunity to create their own caddisfly case out of a variety of materials.
