Volunteers are being recruited for training to monitor streams across Clallam County.
The Streamkeepers program plans a series of training sessions for June.
Volunteers contribute to the gathering of scientific data and enhance their own understanding of water quality, Streamkeepers staff member Ed Chadd said.
“It builds a stronger connection between people and the community and between citizens and the resource,”‘ Chadd said.
The seven training sessions — which start June 7 and run through Sept. 8 — provide at least a mandatory 25 hours of training for volunteers.
The extensive education is required for the volunteers to provide reliable data for habitat biologists and other natural-resources workers who use the information, Chadd said.For the complete story see Thursday’s Peninsula Daily News, on sale in Clallam and Jefferson counties.
