Streamkeepers, Clallam County’s volunteer stream monitoring program, is seeking new volunteers to help collect stream health data, perform data entry and analysis, and conduct education and outreach.
New volunteers join existing stream teams and perform quarterly stream monitoring and other stewardship activities on streams throughout the county — or may provide other kinds of program support, both outdoors and indoors.
Streamkeepers’ annual training begins in June and consists of an introductory evening session and two full-day classes, including both indoor and outdoor instruction. Learn how watersheds provide services to fish, wildlife and people, what threatens watersheds and why and how to monitor them.
No previous experience or special equipment is required; boots or waders are recommended.
Streamkeepers schedules training around the availability of the trainees.
To participate, call the Streamkeepers group at 417-2281 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
