Event description

Description

Save Our Streams (SOS) is a fun way to test water quality in small streams by collecting chemical data and identifying underwater insects, called macroinvertebrates. The Izaak Walton League is partnering with Madison County Conservation, For Lands Sake!, and the Badger Creek Watershed Project to provide a workshop for those who want to become a certified SOS Monitor. Visit www.iwla.org/sos for more info about Save Our Streams.


Certified SOS monitors can submit data to the Clean Water Hub (https://www.cleanwaterhub.org/) to be used in the EPA's Water Quality Exchange for federal decision-making.


Training will consist of a morning session, hosted indoors at the ISU Extension Office, followed by an afternoon session practicing our monitoring techniques at Pammel State Park.


Dress for the weather, as we will be doing the field component in rain or shine in the afternoon. Bring your own rubber boots, waders, or old sneakers if you have them (we ask that you avoid using felt soled waders). Note-taking supplies are suggested. Registration costs will help to provide the classroom and field materials and ID books for participants.


**Don't forget to bring your own lunch to eat during our lunch break between sessions. **


Classes fill up quickly, so register now!
