Thurston County Stream Team seeks volunteers to monitor stream bugs in Yelmarea streams this summer. Steam bugs, known as macroinvertebrates, live in the streambeds and provide useful information about water quality and the biological health of streams.
Volunteers are needed at 10 a.m. July 15 at Eaton Creek, 10 a.m. July 19 at Yelm Creek, and 11 a.m., July 25 at Thompson Creek. To volunteer, contact Ann Marie Finan at 360-754-3355, ext. 6857, or by e-mail at finanam@co . thurston.wa.us.
