STREAM SCHOOL AT CAMDEN COUNTY COLLEGE REGISTRATION

April 27 @ 9:00 am - April 28 @ 4:30 pm

| $15.00

 

Join us for a two-day intensive weekend workshop to learn about water quality monitoring in New Jersey! After a brief introduction to stream and watershed ecology, participants will go streamside to learn techniques for visual habitat assessments, physical monitoring, and benthic macroinvertebrate sampling. Benthic macroinvertebrates, or small organisms like insect larvae, crustaceans, and mollusks that live in streams, are used as biological indicators of stream health.

This workshop is a great introduction to visual and biological monitoring for someone interested in taking the next step and becoming a volunteer monitor! After the workshop, participants will be connected with a community-based monitoring program near them to start volunteering.

Program Notes:

We will meet at Halpern Hall for Science and Education at the Camden County College Blackwood Campus.
Participants should dress for outdoor exploration, rain or shine.
