2015 Fall Volunteer Stream Monitoring Program

September 29, 2015 @ 8:00 am - October 17, 2015 @ 5:00 pm

| Free
Declan Shalley helping lead the Volunteer Stream Monitoring Program

The time is here again to head to the woods and water to sample for macroinvertebrates.  Our Program is set to begin on September 29th and will run until all 18 sites are complete.  Have an interest in learning about stream ecology and bug identification?  Then this program is for you!  With crews going out most days, there may be a perfect time you to join!  Have a day that works for you?  Email us at  christy@yellowdogwatershed.org   for more information of how to get involved!

Each group will be led by a Volunteer Crew Leader or staff member to show you each step.  Our program began with a grant from MiCorps, which allowed us to lead training’s to fully ensure our Volunteer Crew Leaders have the knowledge and ability to record accurate data every time.  The Michigan Clean Water Corps (MiCorps) is a network of volunteer water quality monitoring programs in Michigan. It was created through Michigan Executive Order #2003-15 to assist the Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) in collecting and sharing water quality data for use in water resources management and protection programs.  For more information about MiCorps visit their webpage- https://micorps.net/  

Our sites are spread out between the Yellow Dog River, Salmon Trout River, and their tributaries.  Some include hiking, waterfalls and back roads, while all include the beautiful fall colors!  This is a great time of year to get outdoors and become involved with your local watershed group.  Remember your camera and we’ll see you on the river!
