Slippery Rock Watershed Coalition Seeks Volunteers For Watershed Data Loggers

The Slippery Rock Watershed Coalition in Butler County is seeking volunteers to collect watershed water quality data.
Are you looking for a fun, interesting way to volunteer and help us help our watershed? You may want to consider volunteering as a data logger monitor! We are looking for one or two folks to download the data that is automatically tracked in our data logger devices.
A “data logger” is an electronic device that records data over time or in relation to location either with a built in instrument or sensor or via external instruments and sensors.
The data loggers will be located outdoors in the headwaters of Slippery Rock Creek. Volunteer monitors will be trained at how to download the conductivity and temperature data onto a waterproof shuttle.
The downloading is done on a flexible schedule, just monthly or bi-monthly, and all you need to know will be taught in an easy training session.
The information collected will help us determine the health of this area of Slippery Rock Creek, and signal problematic environmental events.
If you are interested in becoming a data logger monitor, please contact Shaun Busler at 724-776-0161.
