Please join the Ewing Green Team and the AmeriCorps New Jersey Watershed Ambassadors Program to determine the stream health of the Shabakunk
About this event
Stream monitoring is critical to understand what is happening in our waterways. Currently, there are gaps in water monitoring data in NJ and environmental non-profits can help to provide a more comprehensive statewide water quality assessment.
Are you interested in being a stream monitor?
The Ewing Green Team is partnering with the NJ Watershed Ambassadors Program and Watershed Ambassadors Amanda Weigand, to host two days of stream monitoring workshops!
Each free workshop will have two parts — one virtual to learn about the process and why assessments are important, and one held outdoors where volunteers will have the opportunity to gain hands-on experience in stream monitoring. In each session, volunteers will learn about the importance of water quality, how water health is impacting the watershed and how to monitor stream health.
– Part 1 Virtual: Thursday May 12th at 7-8:30 PM
– Part 2 In Person: Saturday May 14th-
Time Slot 1: 9am-11pm
