The Middle Susquehanna Riverkeeper Association is excited to share new opportunities via the Alliance for Aquatic Resource Monitoring (ALLARM) out of Dickinson College and the Columbia County Conservation District to revitalize Columbia County's Stream Team efforts in key regional waterways.
Volunteers are needed to do monthly water testing per ALLARM quality standards using provided equipment and training. Potential openings exist for testing in Roaring Creek, Hemlock Creek, Briar Creek and Mahoning Creek (Montour County).
For more info, including a video overview, and to express your interest in participating, please fill out this online survey as soon as possible: https://bit.ly/ColumbiaInterestForm
Stream Team openings will be filled on a first-registered basis. The form will only be active for a limited time.
"This is a great way for people to make a difference for our aquatic resources in their own communities, and the data collected from this effort helps numerous groups better monitor water health issues across the greater watershed," said Middle Susquehanna Riverkeeper John Zaktansky. "It is something you can do as a family, a Scout group looking to increase conservation work, a church youth group, etc. We encourage everyone to consider getting involved with this program."
Those who are selected to help will be contacted directly by the ALLARM team via email. If you have any questions, contact ALLARM directly at firstname.lastname@example.org or Riverkeeper John Zaktansky at email@example.com
