Expand your knowledge of river ecology and water quality issues while trying out monitoring techniques at our Water Ecology & Quality Workshop on Thursday, August 29 from 6:30pm-8pm. Led by a Hoosier Riverwatch trainer, the workshop will show you how to identify the biological, chemical, and physical characteristics of a river and the ways they relate to water quality and ecosystem health.
