Calling all community scientists! Monitor the health of your watershed in a creek, at a park, or on the shoreline.
Community scientists play a valuable role in collecting long-term data about the health of our watershed. There are several ways to get involved, through a one-time event or a more regular volunteer opportunity. Community scientists monitor:
- Water quality in creeks and during storm events
- How well our bioswales filter pollutants
- Water temperature and other habitat conditions for trout and salmon
- Native Olympia oysters
- Benthic macroinvertebrates (bugs) that tell us about creek health
