This program will teach volunteers how to properly monitor a stream in the Tinker’s Creek watershed, show what conditions to look for that are cause for concern, and who to contact with questions and data. Each site should take about an hour to sample, and a trained leader will be at every monitoring event. The data will be compiled and logged into Tinker’s Creek Watershed Partners website and shared with our partners to monitor the health of the creek and to find sites for future restoration projects. Volunteers are encouraged to adopt a site where they take one the sampling every month for their favorite spot in the watershed. These data help us prioritize work and track pollution. Monitoring runs from May to September.
