Save Our Streams (i.e. SOS) field training offers hands-on experience in water quality monitoring, including biological, chemical, and physical stream assessments. The session will focus on how to monitor area streams as part of the TCTU streamkeeper monitoring program and includes classroom and a streamside session.


Participants also learn to assess stream habitat and watershed land uses. You’ll leave your field training fully equipped to assess water quality – and take steps to fix it! The training may be of special interest to TCTU members that are current or future Streamkeeper volunteer monitors. 


Additional Save Our Stream Certification and training is also available online after the initial training.  Details on SOS Certification are here.

 

Children younger than the age of 17 must be accompanied by an adult.

If the class fills and there is sufficient interest, a second date and training opportunity may be offered.

To make planning easier for the organizers, registration for this event will close at 11:55pm on 8/1/2024. Be sure to register before then!
