BIOLOGICAL MONITORING EQUIPMENT
We use a few specific items of equipment to safely collect stream bugs for the Save Our Streams biological monitoring method. Below is information about where you can obtain each piece of equipment for reasonable prices.
If you are teaching a group of new stream monitors, consider purchasing extra forceps, magnifier lenses, and magnifier boxes to allow the group to work together. Other items you should include in your kit are a white plastic tablecloth (for sorting through leaves and other items in your nets), white ice cube trays (for collecting critters), and knee-high boots.
