Aquatic Monitoring Field Collection

August 12, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

Aquatic insects are an excellent indicator of stream health.  Our aquatic monitoring program assesses the condition of local streams by collecting insects along with other water quality and habitat information.  Join us for a monitoring day!

Come prepared to get in the water!  You will need to walk across rough ground to get to the stream and complete the monitoring.   You will need to wade in and across streams to complete the monitoring.

We need a minimum of 5 volunteers to complete the monitoring protocol, so please RSVP by August 10.

Each monitoring date will be confirmed via e-mail the day before.  Meeting location varies by date, so contact Beth if you are interested in participating.
