The Geauga Soil And Water Conservation District Needs You For Stream Quality Monitoring Summer Adventures!

How would you like to explore streams in Geauga County and learn about their water chemistry and biology this summer? Want to investigate water quality by searching for aquatic critters such as crayfish, dragonflies, water pennies, and caddisflies, which live in our local streams? Then grab your water shoes and join the Millennium Youth Conservationists (MYC) team!

In collaboration with the ODNR Scenic Rivers Program we will use kick seines, sediment sticks, pH test kits, and more to analyze the health of area streams and rivers while providing official stream data to the ODNR Scenic Rivers Program. All ages are welcome!

The adventure begins in June and concludes in August. It is free and only twice a month on Thursday. You may join us for one outing or for all. Contact Colleen Sharp with the Geauga Soil and Water Conservation District by phone (440)834-1122 ext. 6 or email csharp@geaugaswcd.com for more information.
