Manitoulin Streams had staff from the Vale Living with Lakes Centre at Laurentian University come to the Island in October to conduct invertebrate assessments on sites that we restored to get a snap shot on how they are improving. This is part of our pre and post assessments at our restoration sites. Invertebrate samples will be taken back to the lab and identified as they will be used as indicators of water quality. In addition water samples, flow readings, substrate samples and site information is recorded. We hope that by gathering this information we will be able to track our success and provide information to the Ontario Benthos Biomonitoring Network (OBBN) provincial database and the Freshwater Invertebrate Reference Network of Northern Ontario (FIRNNO) that can be used to track the health of our streams and rivers on Manitoulin Island @Valelivingwithlakescentre @manitoulinstreams @improvewaterquality @LaurentianUniversity @ManitoulinIsland
