Join us at the Mary Kahrs Warnell Forest Education Center the morning of July the 14th to learn more about water quality and how you can protect your local waterways. We’ll talk about ways to collect water samples and analyze them for chemicals and bacteria that could be harmful to us and the critters that call the river home. Our agenda includes two presentations, a demo on how to collect samples, and two tests that certify you as an Adopt A Stream volunteer! With this certification, your data will be included in a statewide database that is used for education, policy, and enforcement of water quality standards. We’ve trained over 150 volunteers in the last year to join us on the water and we’re always looking to get more people involved.
