Hamilton Run

This small stream is surrounded by mature hemlock forests. The water was crystal clear and flowing slowly between deeper pools. Substrate is very sandy with quartz pebbles and sandstone rocks of a variety of sizes. The stream was packed with leaf litter, which made finding organisms more challenging than in the summer months. We found mottled sculpin, creek chub, western blacknose dace, two-lined salamander, red-backed salamander, dragonfly larvae, mayflies, stoneflies, caddisflies, craneflies, and crawdads in the stream.

Camp Hervida

This is one of the highest quality southeast ohio streams I've been in, although the camp did quite a lot of logging last year (removed all trees over 18 or 20 inch DBH, I believe, which has resulted in more light reaching the stream and also some slash piles were left in or near the stream. A lot of wildlife present, including a magnificent rainbow darter, two-lined and dusky salamanders, aquatic snails, several large crawdads, and several chub/dace/minnow species. Also observed mayflies hatching before our eyes, and caddisfly and stonefly larvae present. I used to find long-tailed salamanders in/near this creek but have not found them since the logging was done.
