STREAMKEEPERS ANNUAL TRAINING BEGINS JUNE 11

·       Learn how watersheds work and how to assess them

·       Help needed both outdoors and indoors

·       No experience necessary

Streamkeepers, Clallam County’s volunteer stream monitoring program, is seeking new volunteers to help collect stream health data, perform data entry & analysis, and conduct education & outreach. As the program continues to expand, there is a continuing need for volunteers. New volunteers join existing stream teams and perform quarterly stream monitoring and other stewardship activities, on streams throughout the county—or may provide other kinds of program support, both outdoors and indoors.

Streamkeepers’ annual training begins in June and consists of an introductory evening session and two full-day classes including both indoor and outdoor instruction. You will learn how watersheds provide services to fish, wildlife, and people; what threatens our watersheds; and why and how we monitor them. No previous experience or special equipment required–bring boots or waders if you have them. We schedule training around the availability of the trainees, so if you’d like to participate, contact Streamkeepers at 360-417-2281 or streamkeepers@co.clallam.wa.us. Streamkeepers’ website is at www.clallam.net/streamkeepers/.

When:  First night of training will be Tuesday, June 11, 6-9 pm.  Two Saturday field days TBD.

Where:  Clallam County Courthouse, EOC training room in basement—enter via outside stairs on east side of building

Who:  Kids, Teens, Singles, College Students, Dads, Moms, Seniors, Families—all welcome

Cost:  Free

Contact:  RSVP to Ed Chadd at 360-417-2281 or streamkeepers@co.clallam.wa.us
