City of Roanoke

Citizen Science Information Meeting

Join us for our Citizen Science Public Informational Meeting.

Do you love being outside? Are you fascinated by nature? Are you concerned about the health of your local watershed? Remember how fun it was to play in the creek as a kid? Consider becoming a volunteer stream monitor!

The Roanoke Stormwater Division, Clean Valley Council and the Upper Roanoke River Roundtable have partnered to create a citizen science water monitoring program. Focusing on the health of the Roanoke River and its tributaries, community members will engage in local streams and become part of the solution in achieving clean water. As a volunteer you will monitor streams by taking samples of benthic macroinvertebrates to determine the ecological health for the section of stream that is sampled.

You do not have to be a scientist to be a stream monitor; just be willing to learn and have fun!

An informational meeting to learn more about this program will be hosted at the Raleigh Court Branch Library, February 28 at 5:30 pm. Bring a friend and learn more about how to create a Clean Water Legacy!

Date: 02/28/2019 (Thu.)

Time: 5:30pm - 7:30pm EST

Location: Raleigh Court Branch Library
