Help Your Community Make Informed Decisions and Improve Water Quality!
The Clinton River Watershed Council (CRWC) is seeking volunteers for their Adopt-A-Stream program. Adopt-A-Stream empowers community members to protect local streams and rivers by monitoring their health. Volunteers are assembled into teams and then assigned a stream site. From there, they are given equipment, data sheets, and a collection protocol. The goal is to gather information on streamside habitats, physical/chemical characteristics and macroinvertebrate populations. Volunteers must attend one 3-hour training session and dedicate 3-4 hours of their time per year, once in May and once in October.
This critical data is then used by the watershed council, municipalities, and the state to assess the health of our streams and rivers which helps guide decisions regarding their protection and restoration.
The CRWC is looking for individuals who would like to coordinate a site team and team participants. If you would like more information on Adopt-A-Stream volunteer monitoring opportunities or would like to register for training sessions, call 248-601-0606 or send an email to email@example.com.
