Invertebrate Investigation
Explore the variety of life underwater! Through observations of the different types of macro invertebrates found in Barr Lake, students work to identify what they have discovered based on their observations. 

Bug Catchers
Students get buggy as they search for insects and get a closer look at some of their adaptations. 

Eagle Spotters
