Time(s): 
9:00 AM - 4:00 PM, 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.

Volunteer workshop is $50.00 and must be paid in advance of the workshop.  Contact Nate Keener for registration and information.  Also may register on web site.
