Citizen Volunteer
I don’t have stream monitoring experience, but clean water is important to me and I want to see how I can help at home and in my community.


I am a teacher, summer camp instructor, after-school educator, Scout troop leader, or another adult working with kids, and I want to teach them the importance of protecting local water resources.

Girl Scouts

Experienced Stream Monitor
I have monitored streams using established chemical, physical, and/or biological assessment tools (such as Save Our Streams), and I want to know what else I can do to improve water quality locally.

Stream Monitoring

Certified Stream Monitoring Trainer
I have been certified to train volunteers using the Save Our Streams (or other stream monitoring) protocols, and I want to help even more people get their feet wet with stream monitoring!
