The Leaf Pack Experiment is a fun, hands-on research and outreach tool for teachers and citizens of all ages, demonstrating how our actions on land impact life in streams and water quality.

During this workshop, participants will receive an overview of stream ecology and watershed concepts based on research done at Stroud Water Research Center. Taking our boots to the stream, we’ll then examine leaf packs with live aquatic macroinvertebrates and identify what we find. We finish with a look at the Leaf Pack Network® website and database!
