Volunteer Training: Adopt-a-Stream Tidal Saltwater Monitoring-Introductory Training
The South Carolina Adopt-A-Stream (SC AAS) program began in 2017 to train volunteers to collect valuable information on the water quality of freshwater streams throughout the state. Data collected by volunteers helps track patterns and changes in the health of some of our waterways for which we may otherwise have no data. This year the SC AAS launched its saltwater monitoring program, which will expand volunteer monitoring to salt marsh tidal creeks. The Reserve is excited to join this effort as a training and equipment hub for volunteers in the Georgetown county area. Volunteers are sought take on the stewardship of a portion of a wetland area by adopting a local waterway. Attend this information session to learn more about the program and get a preview of how volunteers will complete monthly salt-water habitat surveys, as well as collect physical and chemical data. Participants wishing to become certified SC AAS volunteers must also attend a field training session. For more info in SC AAS, visit the web site.
