Are you interested in water quality? Do you like science? Would you enjoy participating in a citizen science project that monitors streams in your community?
On Saturday, June 17th you are invited to become a Water Action Volunteer by participating in a stream monitoring training offered by the University of Wisconsin Cooperative Extension. There is no cost to participate.
At this training, you will learn how to monitor various aspects of stream health. The purpose of this training is to encourage more people to get involved, help keep an eye out for some key aquatic invasive species, and then enter the data into a Statewide database where trends are monitored.
So come on out, learn a new skill and join the ranks of citizen scientists volunteering to make our world a better place! The training will take place on Saturday, June 17th from 9:00AM- 2:30PM at Bruemmer Park in Kewaunee County. Please go to http://kewaunee.uwex.edu/ or call 388-7141 for more information.
