Is your stream healthy? What makes a healthy stream? What can I do to improve it if it’s not?
Friends of the Rivers and the White River Chapter of Trout Unlimited is offering a FREE Orientation and Workshop to help you make that determination.
This workshop gives folks the basic information they need to know if they want to actively work on behalf of the health of their stream, all streams and/or to work with a stream team, monitoring the water quality and assessing the health of the stream.
Lynn Green, Stream Team educator for the North Central Arkansas Master Naturalists and a Stream Team educator for Friends of the Rivers is the instructor for the day. Lynn states, “this is a great opportunity for anyone concerned about the quality of our streams and it can help folks become involved in local stream teams, or to monitor their own stream.”
Won’t you join us Saturday, October 26 – 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. at the Fred Berry Conservation Education Center, in Yellville, Arkansas.
Coffee and juice available at 9 a.m. with the classroom session to start promptly at 9:30. This free workshop limited to 15 persons. Use the registration form below to assure a spot in the workshop.
Lunch and beverages will be provided. After lunch the class will move to the banks of Crooked Creek where participants will learn to identify insects (macro invertebrates) and to conduct a chemical analysis of the water. The workshop ends at 3:00 p.m.
