Water-quality training set for May

 

 

Valley Stewardship Network and the Crawford Stewardship Project will host two free training events for volunteer water-quality monitoring.

The first will be from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, May 4, at Mother Earth Green Center, 48193 County Hwy. E, Steuben, Wis. The second will be from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, May 11, at Esofea County Park, Park Road off County Hwy. B, west of Viroqua.

Identical training is provided at the two different events; volunteers need to attend only one training. Volunteers will be trained in methods of the statewide Water Action Volunteers (WAV) stream-monitoring program that is run through the Wisconsin DNR and University of Wisconsin Extension (http://watermonitoring.uwex.edu/wav/).

Volunteering requires one hour a month from May to October. Among the topics that will be covered are stream ecology, water-quality measurements, macroinvertebrate diversity, and data submission. Monitoring equipment will be lent to volunteers for both the training session and for the season of monitoring.

Lunch will be provided, but attendees should bring hip boots/waders if they have them.

The training is free and will include both indoor and outdoor components.

To register, contact Dave Krier via email at [email protected] or by phone at (608) 637-3615. You also can register online at valleystewardshipnetwork.org/solutions/workshops.
