River Watch Volunteer Training - Springfield
9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m., Saturday
Citizen Scientist Program
RiverWatch certified volunteers, referred to as Citizen Scientists, collect high quality scientific data that will subsequently be used by professionals and the general public to gauge long-term trends in stream health, develop land management strategies, identify potentially degraded waters, and assess the effectiveness of restoration projects. Through monitoring, Citizen Scientists obtain a greater understanding and appreciation for our rivers and streams and serve as advocates for the protection of those resources.
This training is for new volunteers. Registration is $50.00 and one must register prior to attending a workshop.
Contact Nate Keener for information or registration; may also register on web site.
