Invertebrate Sampling

Much of the biodiversity that characterizes wetland ecosystems can be found on and below the surface of the water. TWC is no exception. The variety aquatic vertebrate and invertebrate populations residing here is AMAZING! ‘Critter dippin’ is one of the most interesting and enjoyable activities that visitors to our site can look forward to participating in. Not only are these creatures marvels of adaptation but their presence can also tell us much about the quality of the water they are living in. TWC’s Wetheads routinely net and dredge aquatic animals as one means of monitoring the overall health of their marsh. Come join us on the critter dippin’ platform.
