Stream Team Training and Orca Recovery Day!

Saturday, October 19, 2019

Looking for an opportunity to engage with local environmental issues? Want to participate in citizen science? Or simply want to spend time outdoors? Stream Team might be for you! Join us for an introduction and training! Stream Team tests against state water quality standards for salmon. Salmon are an important food source for the Southern Resident Orca. Come help protect our watersheds for healthy habitat and clean water!

Stream Team monitors play a key role in stream stewardship by raising awareness of pollution problems and providing water quality data the community can use to protect local streams.

STREAM TEAM IS:
A volunteer water quality monitoring program operating in Pierce County since1994. Monitors measure pH, dissolved oxygen, nitrates, turbidity, water temperature, flow and record habitat observations on prioritized sites.

Goals include:
• Watershed education
• Involve the community in citizen science monitoring
• Increase available water quality data
• Identify areas of concern
