NAACC Culvert Assessment
Eastern Pennsylvania Coalition for Abandoned Mine Reclamation (EPCAMR)
This volunteer opportunity requires taking a brief and basic course in the North Atlantic Aquatic Connectivity Collaborative's (NAACC) culvert assessment. The course is entirely virtual and can be completed within a few hours. Training can then occur in person and 20 hours of in field training will allow volunteers to become Lead Observers who can assess stream crossings on their own.
The nature of the work is assessing bridges and culverts where streams intersect roadways, parking lots, etc. for stream connectivity (the passage of aquatic wildlife). This is crucial work for stream and species conservation, as well as citizen science.
