PA Organization For Watersheds & Rivers Hosts Sept. 8 Webinar On Water Testing Tools By The Water Rangers

Join the
PA Organization for Watersheds and Rivers as they host staff from Water Rangers for an educational and informative webinar on September 8 starting at 6:00 p.m.

Water Rangers has designed beautifully integrated water testing experiences using tools that are easy-to-use and accessible. 

Their custom water quality test kits, an open-data platform to manage data, and specially designed resources make it easy for any citizen science/watershed organization-led water quality monitoring volunteers to collect data, manage results, understand their local water body, and if needed, take action.

Whether your group is just thinking about embarking on a water quality testing project or you are looking for new ways to collect, store, share, and understand your data, this webinar is for you. 

These tools can be used in streams, rivers, and lakes as simple educational tools or to collect baseline data and evaluate change over time.

When people engage in testing efforts, they also learn about their local waterways and feel more motivated to take action to protect them.

Now more than ever, we need people to get involved with environmental stewardship, and testing is a great way to encourage this! Water Rangers tools make it fun, easy, engaging, and meaningful.

This event is free but registration is required to obtain the Zoom link to join.
