Wonder about the biological health of a Reservation stream, lake or wetland?
The Oneida Nation Water Resources Program, in addition to monitoring water quality and fish communities, also monitors the aquatic invertebrates, or “bugs”, annually at several sites on the Reservation. We compile the information and use to see where we are at in restoring these waters.
Have a “bug” you need identified? Although we do not monitor for terrestrial bugs, or bugs that live on land, we can usually tell you what they are if you bring them in. Here is a guide to help you identify what type of bug you may see, Oneida Bugs.
For more information, please contact Jim Snitgen, Water Resources Supervisor (a.k.a. “Bug Man”) at (920) 869-4589.
