Continuing its whirlwind spring tour of schools and festivals, “e” inc will present “Marvelous Macros of the Mystic: How Bugs Tell the Story of Your River” during Medford’s 5th annual River Day celebrations on May 30th from 8:30am-1pm. The festival occurs on the banks of the Mystic River near the Madeline Dugger Andrews Middle School.
This year’s theme is “The Mystic River: Past and Present”. “e” will deliver a workshop on what bugs can be found in the river and what they can say about the environmental health of the ecosystem. Students will learn how to catch and analyse bugs, make field guides and determine what can be done to improve the water quality of the Mystic.
