2021 Dodge County Stream Monitor Training
Rock River Coalition (RRC) is recruiting volunteers to assess the health of streams in Dodge County and 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.
RRC is hosting trainings on Wednesday, May 12 and Saturday, May 22 from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., at the Pavilion at Burnett Fire Station. Register today for this free volunteer training opportunity. The training will be a combination of in 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 workshop is free, but pre-registration is required as space is limited. Due to COVID restrictions the training will be limited to ten participants this year.
