Contribute to Oak Creek's Ecological Health

OCWC is looking for volunteers with all levels of knowledge and experience from novice to expert.

Dr. Larry Stevens will provide training in macroinvertebrate identification and sediment measurement methods. We ask for a commitment of two Saturdays in November 2017 for training and data collection in Oak Creek (see dates above). During Spring 2018 we will repeat the surveys. We hope you can join us in the Spring also. The data that volunteers collect will be used to evaluate how erosion and sedimentation affect key organisms in the creek's food web. The findings will inform development of long-term monitoring and conservation planning. This is citizen science in action!

Spring 2018 survey dates to be determined.

Microinvertebrate surveys 798x532
