River Rendezvous Spring quarterly and River Clean up

After a brief orientation complete with light breakfast and coffee, volunteers will go to various stream sites in the Athens area where you will monitor for biological, bacterial, and chemical water quality. No experience needed. Just dress to get wet and dirty. There will lunch and live music. 

UOWN uses the information collected to track the health of our streams and detect water quality issues. The results are shared with local and state organizations. This is a great way to put in some outdoor volunteer time and learn water quality testing procedures.

Those obtaining water samples for chemical analysis (pH, turbidity, conductivity, etc.) need not have any previous training or experience.

Those obtaining macroinvertebrate samples must have completed training in the proper techniques for collecting macrobiotic samples. Training using Adopt-A-Stream methodology or similar UGA lab training is acceptable. We are also organizing a stream clean up that can accommodate up to 20 volunteers.
