South Carolina Adopt-a-Stream (SC AAS) creates a network of watershed stewardship, engagement, and education through involvement. SC AAS volunteers can play an important role in monitoring and tracking water quality while sharing information about local water resources with their communities. In providing baseline information about stream conditions, volunteers, local communities, educators, and local government agencies can partner to protect and restore our waters.
This workshop will certify individuals to become SC AAS volunteers in the chemical and bacterial parameters of the program. Attendees will learn how to measure pH, dissolved oxygen, conductivity, and temperature. The workshop will involve both indoor and outdoor instruction, and conclude with a written exam. Individuals must complete the exam with 80% to become certified volunteers.
Although attendees are not required to choose a stream monitoring site and begin monthly monitoring, it is highly encouraged. The workshops are rain or shine and you are expected to become prepared to get in the stream! Please bring boots and a lunch.
