Project Description

STREAM MONITORING
Saturday, August 12, 1:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.


Spring and summer provide a great opportunity for us to get out and be in nature. What better way to do this than to get your feet wet in one of Reston
Association's streams? RA welcomes new volunteers to assist with stream monitoring at several locations throughout Reston April-August 31.

Get involved with a small team during all seasons to collect data and identify insects with the goal of assessing the health of Reston's streams. Not only
do you get to learn about Reston's streams, you also get an opportunity to make new friends.

If you are interested in assisting with stream monitoring for more than one or two sessions, training and practice opportunities are offered by joining seasoned volunteers and RA staff. You can earn a stream monitoring certificate after successfully demonstrating your ability to identify macroinvertebrates. Each monitoring session consists of two to three hours. Any level of interest or commitment is appreciated.

If interested or if you want additional information, join our volunteer monitor email distribution list to receive notices of upcoming monitoring dates. Email William Peterson at wpeterson@reston.org with the message, "add me to the stream monitors list" to begin receiving emails. If none of the above dates work for you, Will is more than happy to have people help him with sites during the work week.
