A guidebook is provided and volunteers are notified of training opportunities during the year. Training opportunities include how to conduct biological surveys, stream mapping and more.

Home Waters Activists- These volunteers receive educational alerts when there is a current issue or hot topic in their watershed. They take action and speak out by educating their neighbors, writing letters, attending meetings and public hearings, and talking to public officials about threats to their local watershed. These are volunteers who raise their voice to protect their home waters. No special training is necessary. You choose your area of interest and types of actions. This is the group for people who are interested in advocacy and proactive protection! River Monitors - These volunteers perform chemical water quality tests, survey for sediment pollution and participate in macroinvertebrate surveys at test sites in the watershed. Tests are conducted biweekly and all data is recorded in logs. Monitors receive training and attend periodic reviews and quality assurance sessions.
