Event Details

Sunnyvale World Water Monitoring Challenge

Please note the change in date for this event - November 3rd

Come learn more about the watershed in which you live, how watersheds work, and what you can do to protect important creek habitat.

Who: This is a great activity for young families, students looking for volunteer hours, and community members who are just plain curious about their local creek. Volunteers of all ages are welcome; minors under 18 require a signed waiver and those under high school age require an accompanying adult unless prior approval is obtained. Preregistration is required.

What: Volunteers are invited to come help us determine the quality of water in Stevens Creek with monitoring activities which are easy and fun to carry out. Even the youngest volunteers will enjoy performing tests with our color-changing indicator kits. Participants will also have the opportunity to do a bit of biomonitoring by looking at which aquatic bugs live in this part of the creek - finding too many pollution tolerant bugs could mean a pollution problem. Monitoring results will be shared with communities around the world which are holding their own World Water Monitoring Challenge events.

When: Saturday, November 3, 10:00 am to noon.

Where: Meet at the bridge on Stevens Creek behind West Valley Elementary School. If you drive to the event, you may park in the school’s parking lot and walk along the trail through the grassy area behind the school back to the creek area. 

Bring: Volunteers under the age of 18 must bring a signed waiver. Please wear comfy shoes and bring a refillable water bottle.
