Pond Life at Black's Nook
Participants in this Biodiversity Days program observed and recorded
living things ranging in size from algae and minute insects to trees
and birds. Program co-leader Susan Agger (red jacket in left hand photo)
demonstrated methods of collecting macroinvertebrates from the water.
Later, indoors, the family in the right-hand photo are seen examining
specimens swimming in a pan. Squizzle Plekavich, center photo, used
a plankton net to collect algae and zooplankton, which he later identified
and photographed through microscope.
