Event Details

 World Water Monitoring Challenge

Mountain View

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

 

Volunteers of all ages are needed.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. Plus, we will be doing a trash assessment of areas near the creek. Monitoring results will be shared with communities around the world which are holding their own World Water Monitoring Challenge events.

When: Saturday, July 28, 10:00 am to noon.

Where: Meet near the La Avenida entrance to the Stevens Creek Trail in Mountain View (1000 La Avenida, near Microsoft).

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