Snapshot Monitoring Day

Wed, 09/27/2017 - 2:00pm - 6:00pm

                                                                     

You can be one of 150+ volunteers to assist in monitoring water quality at 100 sites throughout Kosciusko, Noble and Whitley Counties in one afternoon!

Snapshot Day volunteers will become citizen scientists monitoring temperature, dissolved oxygen, and transparency at local sites. You’ll also collect water samples for analysis of bacteria, nitrate, phosphate and pH levels. The valuable data collected by Snapshot Day volunteers will be used to drive action for clean water! 

Monitoring sites will vary from wetlands - to large streams - to small ditches through culverts on county roads. Sites have been assessed for their safety and difficulty to access - and we have a wide range for every ability! Whether you have ever waded in a stream or not, there is a site for you. 

The event runs from 2:00pm - 6:00pm. We estimate your time commitment will be 1½ to 2 hours.

At registration, TWF will provide you with the sampling materials and more information on your testing sites! We hope you join us!
