Register Now For Brodhead Watershed Assn. Volunteer StreamWatcher Training March 24 & 26 In Monroe County

Brodhead Watershed Association is seeking new "water warriors" for its popular StreamWatch Program in Monroe County.

StreamWatchers are vital volunteers who spend one to two hours per month collecting water quality data from streams near their homes. Their findings help generate graphic, long-term snapshots of stream health.

Volunteer training sessions for Brodhead Watershed residents will be held on Thursday, March 24 at 7 p.m. at Northampton Community College Monroe Campus and on Saturday, March 26 at 10 a.m. at the Brodhead Creek Heritage Center

This year’s events will feature a new, simplified program approximately one hour in length. Light refreshments will be served.

For more than 30 years, StreamWatch volunteers have been the “eyes and ears” of Monroe County’s local streams on a monthly basis. Now, with more than 70 volunteers in seven sub-watershed regions of the Brodhead Watershed, almost 100 sites are monitored. 

New volunteers are always welcome to join the efforts to ensure clean and abundant water.

Questions should be directed to the Brodhead Watershed Association at 570-839-1120.
