The the Huron River Watershed Council needs volunteers on January 30 for their annual Stonefly Search. People congregate at different streams or points along the river to collect insects that live under the ice. Only one person actually goes in the water but everyone examines samples which can tell a lot about the health of the river. Although it's cold, people dress warmly and there are always loads of goodies and hot drinks available at their New Center headquarters on North Main. This is a great family event and a novel way to spend time outdoors. Deadline for sign-up is this coming Monday, January 11.


Sounds like a great excuse to pull out the hot toddy recipes.
