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 generally 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. 

Trails and Gardens

Missaukee Conservation District maintains a trail system

and native plant demonstration garden at our office.

  We are always in need of gardeners to help maintain

these features. We are also currently seeking grants

to refurbish several garden areas and add

educational components throughout the trail system.

Contact sara.huetteman@macd.org for more information.
