Looking for a new opportunity to get outside, get involved, and learn something new? Join the Nanticoke Creekwatchers team in 2020!
Water quality data tells us how well we're managing our waterways, what's working, and where we need to make improvements. Our award-winning citizen scientists collect water samples, take measurements directly in local waterways, and make site observations. Our Creekwatcher sites are accessible by foot. No previous knowledge or experience with water quality monitoring is required. We're looking for enthusiastic volunteers who can learn to follow our high-level protocol.
Minors aged 13 and older are welcome to participate with a parent or guardian and may earn service learning hours.
We have openings in Delaware (Seaford and Bridgeville) and in Maryland (Sharptown, Quantico, and near Hebron/Mardela Springs). Check out the Google Map of Creekwatchers sites (http://bit.ly/NanticokeCWSites) to see where we need your help.
Training will include a program and organization orientation, detailed protocol info, equipment usage and troubleshooting, and hands-on time with equipment in the afternoon while running through a mock Creekwatchers outing. (The afternoon session is mandatory for new Creekwatchers.) Please bring a bagged lunch.
