Fall Quarterly Monitoring
Sunday November 12, 2017; 9:00 AM
Sandy Creek Nature Center
Our Fall Quarterly monitoring event will be held Sunday, November 12th, beginning at 9 am at Sandy Creek Nature Center (directions).
If you plan to attend, please sign up in advance. Sign up page can be found here.
After a brief orientation complete with light breakfast and coffee, volunteers will go to various stream sites in the Athens area where you will monitor for biological, bacterial, and chemical water quality. No experience needed. Just dress to get wet and dirty.
UOWN uses the information collected to track the health of our streams and detect water quality issues. The results are shared with local and state organizations. This is a great way to put in some outdoor volunteer time and learn water quality testing procedures.
See our Science and Monitoring page for data and site locations.
