What's Bugging Boise Creek?

Stream bugs, also called benthic macroinvertebrates, live in or near the streambed and can be seen with the naked eye. These tiny spineless creatures are important indicators of stream health and play crucial roles in the stream ecosystem (adapted from pugetsoundstreambenthos.org).

The King Conservation District (KCD) Stream Steward program welcomes Jo Wilhelm, Ecologist with the King County Department of Natural Resources and Parks and member of the Puget Sound Stream Benthos group. Jo will talk about benthic macro invertebrates and how they contribute to stream vitality, water quality and wildlife habitat.
