2021 Volunteer Stream Monitoring Registration Information

Rock River Coalition is recruiting volunteers to assess the health of streams throughout the Rock River basin. Volunteer stream monitors devote a few hours each month (from May to October) to collect information vital to understanding stream health. Stream monitors provide valuable information to assist in identifying healthy stream segments and flagging segments that potentially have water quality concerns. This information will help target local efforts where they are most needed.

The training will be a combination of outdoor classroom and hands-on, feet-in-the-water, look at streams and methods used to assess what affects them. Participants will learn to measure stream flow, temperature, water clarity and dissolved oxygen. They will also learn how to assess stream health by examining aquatic insects. All equipment is provided for the training– just bring a pencil and writing pad, lunch, water, towel, and hip boots or waders (or wear shoes that can be worn in the water).

The training workshops are free, but pre-registration is required as space is limited. Due to COVID restrictions the training will be limited to ten participants per date this year, and all training will occur outdoors.

Available training times and dates:

Saturday, May 22, 2021 — 9:00 to 3:00 — Dodge County, WI
