For the last year, dedicated interns and volunteers have collected water quality data at over 20 sites throughout Contra Costa County. We are happy to report that our data is now online thanks to Water Reporter, a fast-growing social network dedicated to helping communities observe, protect, and restore our world’s waterways. Click here to see the data we collected in the Wildcat, San Pablo, Walnut, Grayson, and Marsh Creek Watersheds!
Call for volunteers
We’re now moving into our second year of the Creek Monitoring Program, and we would love to get you out into the creeks with us! We could use a few stalwart volunteers to assist our interns in the field every second Friday from approximately 10am-1pm. If you’d like to learn how to use water quality meters and collect valuable data in our local creeks, please contact Helen at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We would like to thank the funders of this program, the Contra Costa County Fish and Wildlife Committee and the California Environmental Protection Agency; we also thank Water Reporter for providing their services free of charge for a trial period.
