Bug Nights 2016: Bug Appétit!


Show your great taste by treating yourself to the Twenty-first Annual BUG NIGHTS!

Since 1995, volunteers including anglers, students, teachers, paddlers, and many others interested in the health of the Upper Merrimack River and general river ecology began learning about these fascinating creatures and what they tell us about river conditions.

Your work as a citizen scientist helps determine the health of the Upper Merrimack watershed.

Training is free, fun, and a great way to spend quality time with family and friends as well as an opportunity to make new acquaintances. Be sure to bring your appetite for bugs, denatured alcohol, and funny body part names.

Upper Merrimack Monitoring Program Bug Nights 2016 sessions are held on most Wednesdays from late January through mid-May at St. Paul’s School.

This year, the doors open at 6:15 pm and we will exit the laboratory promptly at 9:00.

An instructional training and refresher class will be conducted during the first session on January 27, 2016.

Refresher and additional training will be provided at each session.

All equipment and alcohol (denatured preserving alcohol only) are provided—just bring yourself and a friend.

Be sure to check to be sure that we are in session that evening.
