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.
