Help us monitor the water’s chemistry and flow!

Enjoy being outdoors while measuring the quality of local rivers and streams during spring and summer! Learn how to collect water samples, measure stream flow, and sample runoff from rain storms. No prior experience needed. New participants* must attend an orientation session. We held our first orientation on March 24, 2018. Our next orientation will be on Saturday, June 23, 2018.

*If you participated in the program in 2016 or 2017, you are not required to attend the orientation, but are more than welcome to come if you’d like a refresher or to meet the new volunteers. Please register in order to be added to the list of volunteers and note in the comments that you are a returning volunteer, and let us know if you are attending orientation, or email Andrea at

Our next orientation session will be on June 23, 2018. Sign up below.
