Adopt A Stream Volunteer Training

May 19 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

Join us and learn how to monitor water quality and help protect your watershed!

Chemical and Macroinvertebrate Training for volunteers. Contact vista@lulalake.org to participate in this free training.

The Chemical Monitoring workshop is designed to teach volunteers about basic stream water chemistry and how to conduct the chemical tests using hand-held field equipment. The basic set of tests that volunteers are asked to conduct includes dissolved oxygen, conductivity, pH, and temperature. Advanced tests may include alkalinity, phosphate and nitrate-nitrogen.

Learn how to sample the biological aspects of a stream. The macroinvertebrates (insects, mollusks, & crustaceans) found in a stream are excellent indicators of the condition of both water quality and habitat. This workshop will focus on collection techniques for either rocky or muddy bottom streams and macroinvertebrate identification.
