Spring Stream Keeper Field Training Session Two

April 15 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

Adopt a Stream Volunteers

Suit up and get your stream on with this outdoor training session on how to collect valuable data on the health of our stream and rivers. Using procedures designed by the Michigan Clean Water Corps and equipment provided by WMEAC, you will dive into the underwater world of freshwater macroinvertebrates. Samples of these organisms will be collected from the stream and preserved for a later identification session.

Stream Keepers will be trained on how to conduct field work at several locations in two subwatersheds of the Lower Grand River: Buck Creek and Plaster Creek. Refer to this map for more information on our current macroinvertebrate monitoring sites.

Attending one of the following training sessions is required to participate in the Spring Sampling Series.

Registration by April 10th is required for this event. Click here to sign up!
