About this Event

Attend this training to become a group leader or macroinvertebrate collector for our biannual samplings of the Cedar River.

As a leader you will coordinate a group of volunteers, making sure they get to their sampling site. You will also be responsible for filling out data sheets and keeping track of time.

As a collector you will suit up in a pair of waders, get in the river, and sample a variety of river habitats for macroinvertebrates.

At this training you will learn how to identify the different sampling environments, how to fill out our data sheets, macroinvertebrate sampling techniques, and more! The training will include a field portion at Averill Creek.

If you would like to register as a volunteer for our 2019 fall sampling of the Cedar River, please do so here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/fall-stream-sampling-and-identification-night-tickets-66874522497
