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.
New participants must attend a virtual program orientation session on Saturday, March 25, 2023. For additional details and to sign up, please click the buttons above. If you are unable to attend the virtual orientation but are still interested in participating in the program, please contact Andrea Paine at email@example.com. If you have previously participated in the Chemistry and Flow Monitoring Program in 2022, you are not required to attend an orientation, but must still register for the program as a returning volunteer.
