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 one-hour program orientation session on Saturday, March 23, 2019 (Washtenaw County) or Saturday, March 30, 2019 (Wayne County). For additional details and to sign up, please click the buttons below. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
Registration is required for program participation. New participants are welcome to attend either program orientation (March 23 or 30) and volunteer for sampling trips in both counties during the season. If you have participated in the Chemistry and Flow Monitoring Program in the last two years, you are not required to attend an orientation, but please register for the program as a returning volunteer.
