Stream Monitoring Volunteers Needed

It’s July and that means it is time to start organizing new volunteers to join our streamsmart volunteer monitoring.

If you have previously completed StreamSmart training, are a current or former master naturalist, an outdoor enthusiast, or somebody that wants to get involved in environmental activities, then becoming a StreamSmart Volunteer is for you!  Our annual training is coming up on Saturday, July 14 and you can register to attend for free, here

However, some of you may already be ready to get out in the field and are looking for a site to help monitor.  This year we have developed an online registration process to monitor a site.  Below are the sites where we need volunteers.  Each site has a map and a photo of the site, along with a site registration form.  Take a look at these sites and when you find one where you want to work, just fill out the volunteer form and we’ll contact you about helping with upcoming monitoring.

If you have any questions or need more information about volunteering or if you need information about a specific site, please contact Angela Danovi at 479-295-7717 or email adanovi@ozarkswaterwatch.org
