Student Fisheries Association assists TN State Parks with hands-on demonstrations during Nature Rally

Nature RallyNature Rally 2The Student Fisheries Association (SFA) recently lent a hand to Tennessee State Parks with the staging of Nature Rally, an annual event designed to increase public awareness and appreciation of natural resources found at parks in the state. This year's Nature Rally was held on April 12-13 at Standing Stone State Park, and SFA members led a session focused on aquatic invertebrates in which they demonstrated common sampling approaches and provided basic information about identifying some of the most commonly encountered invertebrates. As explained by SFA members, sampling aquatic invertebrates is an important component of monitoring the health of freshwater ecosystems since the presence and absence of certain groups can indicate the relative level of degradation in the system.
