Stream Monitoring

Volunteers help monitor water quality in our streams

and rivers by collecting and identifying aquatic

macro-invertebrates. It’s a fun activity for families,

educators or individuals. Monitoring general takes

place in the spring and fall. Additional dates may be

added as educational events, where we welcome

volunteers to teach alongside staff.  Interested in

learning more? Details of these events are posted on

our Stream Monitoring page.
