TEAM LEADER TRAINING

If you have attended a Bug Hunt or Stonefly Search or have some experience with benthic macroinvertebrate sampling, take the next step and become a Team Leader.
Team Leaders are provided with training and guidance and are asked to be available to lead a team during the spring and fall bug hunts and winter stonefly searches.

Currently, training is being offered in a hybrid format with an online training followed by a half day in the field.

Field Training: April 9, Fall: Oct. 8
