More boots in the stream = more data for science and action!
Dave Krier & Omaru Heras training new Water Action Volunteers!
On May 4th and 11th, Crawford Stewardship Project partnered again with our allies at Valley Stewardship Network to run trainings for Water Action Volunteers, the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources/UW Extension sponsored program that helps citizens to collect information on the health of our streams and rivers.
It has been exciting to see many new faces at these trainings, and we look forward to expanding our monitoring scope with our new citizen scientists!
A big thanks to all the volunteers who helped us make this happen, to Valley Stewardship Network, and to the WDNR, who provided us with several new monitoring kits, coordinates with our groups, and hosts the important data we are collecting on their Source Water Integrated Monitoring System database.
