General News: New Save Our Streams Trainers

Outdoor America 2018 Issue 4

Also in November, the League hosted a Save Our Streams Train-the-Trainer Workshop at our national headquarters in Gaithersburg, Maryland. Five experienced stream monitors from different states (Indiana, Iowa, Minnesota, New York, and Ohio) spent the weekend on field work, teaching practice, and sharing monitoring experiences.

These volunteers are now certified to train new Save Our Streams monitors, and each has a goal of training at least 30 new stream monitors each year! These trainers can greatly expand the League’s capacity to train new stream monitors, bringing us closer to our Clean Water Challenge goal of monitoring 100,000 new stream sites by 2022.

Sign up for an upcoming SOS workshop or schedule one in your community!

Special thanks to the Izaak Walton League of America Endowment for a grant that made this Train-the-Trainer Workshop possible.
