Izaak Walton League staff are passionate about getting citizens involved in water quality monitoring and helping them use those results to protect local waters. In 2016, the national staff hit the road to offer hands-on training to teachers, students, and League members and discuss the future of volunteer water quality monitoring. National staff:
- Attended division meetings to talk about the Clean Water Report and the Clean Water Challenge.
- Held Save Our Streams workshops across the country to teach volunteers how to test water quality in local streams.
- Facilitated workshops to engage new volunteers in the Chesapeake Bay regional cooperative.
- Trained teachers to use streams as living classrooms to students in water-based science activities through our Creek Freaks program.
