Maryland Stream Wading Program dates

Volunteers are invited to join the DNR Stream Wading program over the next two few weekends. Waders sample the various tributaries which feed into Deep Creek Lake for presence of macro-invertebrates. Samples are sent to the DNR Lab in Annapolis for analysis by their scientists. The kinds and quantities of "bugs" found are an indicator of stream health.

Waders are going on out the following weekends: April 24 and 25 and, if necessary May 1 and 2. Boots and waders will be supplied if needed and some jobs don't require getting wet. Learn about the Deep Creek Lake watershed and discover amazing differences from one stream to the next.
