2013 Training Workshops
Phase I (Introductory) Workshop - Program Logistics, Field Chemistry, Grab Sampling
Phase I Recertification Workshop
Saturday, August 3, 2013 from 10am - 11 am
Anderson County Public Library
114 North Main Street, Lawrenceburg, KY 40342
This workshop is for current volunteers only who have not been retrained in the new watershed watch protocols. If you were trained in 2012 or earlier this year, you do not need to attend unless you want a refresher course.
Phase II Workshop - Biological and Habitat Assessment

Fall 2013 Workshops
"Advancing Green Infrastructure", October 10, 2013.
A full-day conference at the Locust Trace AgriScience Farm, 242 Locust Farm Road, off Leestown Pike, Lexington. Join us as we bring together a diverse group of stakeholders from the public and private sectors to collaborate and explore new opportunities for expanding the use of green infrastructure in Lexington. These green techniques can be used to address the city’s wet weather pollution problems while beautifying our communities and saving money. Panel discussions will evaluate Lexington’s progress with green infrastructure to date, provide a national context for this progress, identify technical and policy barriers to the use of green infrastructure in Lexington, discuss “lessons learned” from a design and engineering perspective, and explore opportunities for future collaboration and coordination.
Phase 1 Workshop - Program Logistics, Field Chemistry, and Grab Sample
This training workshop provides volunteers with an understanding of the Watershed Watch mission and goals, as well as the operational details of the organization. Trainees will learn how to analyze field chemistry (temperature, pH, dissolved oxygen, conductivity, etc.) and collect grab samples for laboratory analysis of specific water quality parameters.
Phase 2 Workshop - Biological and Habitat Assessments
This follow- workshop builds on the Phase I offering by providing volunteers with the tools to assess the quality of stream habitat and its biological community. Both of these assessments will provide volunteers with a broader understanding of the status of their stream and potential improvement needs.
