Help us monitor our region’s waters!

Enjoy being outdoors while measuring the quality of local rivers and creeks! Learn how to collect water samples, measure stream flow, and record water chemistry measurements. No prior experience needed. Volunteers are expected to commit to at least 8 sampling trips during the growing season (April through September). During each sampling trip, volunteers spend two hours in the field on average.

New participants must attend a program orientation session on Saturday, March 23, 2019 from 1:00-2:30 PM. For additional details and to sign up, please click here. If you have participated in the Chemistry and Flow Monitoring Program in 2017 or 2018, you are not required to attend the orientation, but must still register for the program as a returning volunteer.

An additional orientation session is held in June of each year. To sign up for the June 29, 2019 orientation, please email Andrea at
