Expand your knowledge of river ecology and water quality issues while trying out monitoring techniques at our Water Ecology & Quality Workshop on June 15 from 6pm-8:30pm. Led by Delaware County’s Hoosier Riverwatch trainer, this workshop begins with a program at BSU’s Environmental Education Center. Then, you will travel (using your own vehicle) to Westside Park for hands-on exploration using water quality monitoring tools.
The workshop will show you how to identify the biological, chemical, and physical characteristics of a stream and the ways they relate to water quality and ecosystem health. Posters and take-home water quality testing kits will be raffled off during class!
No prior knowledge or experience is required. Registrants must be 18+ years old.
If you would like to apply your new interest in water quality, Upper White River Watershed Management Plan invites you attend a full training later in the year to become a certified Hoosier Riverwatch volunteer and contribute to a statewide database.
A $10 registration fee* covers in-class water testing materials, printouts, and snacks.
This workshop is offered in partnership with Upper White River Watershed Management Plan and Ball State University.
*Teachers are welcome to contact Kelley V. Phillips at email@example.com for a waived fee. This workshop is eligible for Professional Growth Points.
