Time(s): 
9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m., Saturday 
Description: 
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.
