NCADH is hosting a series of training workshops across the state on stream monitoring methods.
Who should attend? Anyone who engages or is interested in engaging citizen scientists in monitoring streams. Participants will learn about and practice methods that NCADH recommends for citizen stream monitoring.
Each workshop will take place over two days and will consist of both classroom and in-the-stream components each day. Lunch is included both days. Participants can earn Environmental Education Criteria II Continuing Education credit.
Participants can register for day 1, day 2, or both days:
Day 1: 9am – 6pm – Monitoring best practices, habitat assessment, and Tier 1 and Tier 2 chemical/physical monitoring.
Day 2: 9am – 4pm – Tier 2 Bacteria sampling and Tier 1 macroinvertebrate monitoring.

Tier 2 benthic macroinvertebrate monitoring for program leaders will be taught in a separate, two day workshop hosted by the Environmental Quality Institute. More information about the Tier 2 macro workshop is coming soon!
