2016 September 10th. Free Hoosier Riverwatch Training, Purdue University(Smith Hall Rm 126), West Lafayette, IN, 9am-3pm.

Are you curious about the life cycle of a dragonfly?  Have you ever wondered about the quality of the stream near your house? Have you ever wanted to learn how stream health is determined?

Come learn about the water resources that surround you every day by participating in a Hoosier Riverwatch basic training workshop.  The workshop presents watershed management and water quality monitoring concepts using a mix of interesting classroom and fun field activities.  Participants will learn about the chemical, biological and physical testing methods used to determine the quality of local streams.  The primary objective is to train participants for volunteer water quality monitoring in the Hoosier Riverwatch program; however, we also welcome those who are just interested in the subject!  

Any interested 18+ adult is welcome to attend.  After successfully completing the workshop, individuals that work for schools, non-profits, and government agencies are eligible to apply for a Riverwatch Monitoring Equipment Package of testing supplies and materials. Interested? Contact Victoria Leffel to register: 765-807-1095 or vleffel@wabashriver.net
