Illinois Riverwatch Freshwater Mussel Training
July 15, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 4:30 pm CDT| $50.00
Get involved in citizen science this summer by becoming an Illinois Riverwatch certified stream monitor! Note: This is not a SCARCE program.
The Illinois RiverWatch Network is a statewide, non-profit, volunteer stream monitoring program. Volunteers are trained and certified as “Citizen Scientists” to monitor and protect a local stream. Upon completing training and becoming certified, volunteers adopt a stream site and examine freshwater mussel populations as indicators of stream health. This workshop will be held at the Urban Stream Research Center in Warrenville, IL. Driving directions can be found here.
This workshop is primarily for adults (18+) and 4-H members. Kids under the age of 18 are allowed to attend with an adult chaperone, and are not required to register, but do need to be noted on their chaperone’s registration form.
Special instructions for 4-H members. 4-H members must select “payment by check” and list their organization as their 4-H group so that the Illinois 4-H office can pay your registration fee.
Registration and Payment Deadline. Registration and payment must be made by July 9, 2017 to secure your seat and materials for the workshop. Anyone registering or paying after this date is not guaranteed admittance.
