Be a Stream Hero

We train volunteers to assess ecological conditions in streams based on the absence/presence of benthic macroinvertebrates (aquatic critters). Training includes field workshops and mentoring by experienced monitors. Volunteers can assist at different levels of commitment. You may choose to participate in the NVSWCD monthly stream monitoring, or you may become a certified stream monitor to adopt your chosen stream and commit to monitoring it four times a year.

If you choose to volunteer with this opportunity, you will be contacted with upcoming NVSWCD monthly stream monitoring dates.
