Field Notes
We were happy because we didn’t fall and found many macroinvertabrates. A big question was what kind of macroinvertabrate is this? Also, how are we gonna get down to the river? We saw a crayfish, macroinvertabrates, grass, trees, slippery rocks, and water. We were surprised and happy that we didn’t find any leeches or snails. We were surprised by the big, long macroinvertabrate that we found. We heard water flowing and people talking. We smelled algae.
