Are you curious about the quality of your local stream? Butler County Stream Team volunteers go out on 2nd Saturday each month to collect water samples from creeks around the county to monitor the pollution levels.
Collect water samples in Morgan/Ross Twp- we are seeking a volunteer to collect water samples from creeks on the 2nd Saturday of each month. We have specific locations. Volunteer would need to attend a training on Sat, Feb 8 at the Butler County Engineers Office in Hamilton.
Volunteer in our water quality lab at Miami in Oxford - No experience is needed. We are seeking volunteers to help in the lab. It can be anywhere from labeling samples to actually performing chemical tests. Training is provided for each new task you decide to help with.
Interested in statistics? If so, you could look at some of the water quality data we have already collected to help us look for trends.
Stream Team volunteers also get together several times a year for potlucks, canoe outings, fun classes and more.
