Maine Audubon and the Department of Environmental Protection are teaming up with the Lakes Environmental Association and the Portland Water District to recruit community scientists who can help survey large aquatic insects (macroinvertebrates) in streams in southern Maine.  

All you need to do is attend two online training sessions on how to find and identify approximately 40 “Least and Most Wanted” aquatic insects that are indicators of stream health, and then visit one to three streams between May and October. During your survey you will search for the Least and Most Wanted macroinvertebrates and send in the collected data. We will provide training, equipment, maps of the survey streams, and data forms and instructions. We recommend you conduct your surveys in pairs for safety reasons (even in this pandemic time, that should be safe to do).
