River watch training set for March 16
ADDISON COUNTY — The Addison County River Watch Collaborative depends on a network of well-trained and hardy volunteers to collect samples from area rivers and streams once per month from April to September. Anyone interested in helping with this effort can come to a sample collection training on Saturday, March 16, from 9-11:30 a.m. at the Addison County Regional Planning Commission, 14 Seminary St.
Training participants will learn water quality sampling methods, tools that help preserve the watershed.
Volunteer river monitors are needed to help sample on the Otter Creek, Middlebury River, Lemon Fair River, New Haven River, Lewis Creek, and Little Otter Creek. Bagels, fruit and locally roasted coffee will be served starting at 8:30 a.m. For more information call or email managing director Matthew Witten at 802-434-3236, [email protected] or acrpc.org/acrwc.
