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 4 sampling trips during the growing season (April through September) to designated monitoring sites in Washtenaw and Wayne counties. During each sampling trip, volunteers spend 2-4 hours in the field on average.

Volunteer sign-up for 2022 is now closed. However, if you have previously participated in the Chemistry and Flow Monitoring Program and would like to sign up to volunteer in 2022, please contact Andrea Paine
