RiverWatch is a network of volunteers who steward and protect
Illinois streams. RiverWatch-certified volunteers are trained to
detect and track the changes in water quality as suggested by
changes in the population of macroinvertebrates, such as dragonfly
nymphs, beetle larva, midges and snails. In doing so, they provide
valuable insight to the health of our rivers and streams.
interactive workshop next Saturday will give volunteers the tools to
test water quality and collect reliable data. No previous experience
is necessary, just enthusiasm and the willingness to learn.

Registration is required for the workshop and a fee is
