Join the LRWP, our Watershed Ambassadors, and Rutgers Professor Richard Lathrop (Director of the Rutgers University Ecological Preserve and the Sustainable Raritan River Initiative) for an afternoon ramble and macroinvertebrate sampling demonstration in Rutgers EcoPreserve.
We will be sampling in Buell Brook, a headwater stream that flows through the Rutgers University Ecological Preserve before emptying into the Raritan River in Johnson Park. The EcoPreserve serves as a natural teaching area and outdoor recreation hub with over 7 miles of trails. Buell Brook’s riffles and pools provide habitat for such fishes as black-nosed dace, creek chub and American eels. Immature eels, known as glass eels, migrate up the river and seek refuge in these smaller tributary streams.
We will meet at the kiosk across from the Business School on Avenue E. Park in the gravel lot near the Business School (100 Rockafeller Rd, Piscataway Township, NJ 08854) or in the RAC parking lot and cross over Avenue E.
Wear appropriate clothing and footwear that can get wet.
