Byrne Creek Autumn Bug Count

Volunteers collect and enumerate aquatic invertebrates twice a year on Byrne Creek in Burnaby, BC, to assess water quality using the protocols in the Streamkeepers Handbook.

Unfortunately our water quality is nearly always poor due to the surrounding urban environment.

We did find a few cool bugs today in addition to the usual aquatic worms, scuds, midges, and mayflies.
