Water Quality Monitoring

Seeking Volunteers to Participate in  Stream School in May

Paulins Kill Watershed Community is seeking 5 more volunteers to participate in the Watershed Institute’s Stream School in May.  Volunteers will become accredited to participate in the scientific monitoring of the Paulins Kill Watershed’s stream habitats and macroinvertebrates. 

The May Stream School will be held in 5 sessions:

  • May 1: virtual, 6-8pm
  • May 2: virtual, 6-8pm
  • May 2: virtual, 6-8pm
  • May 4: in person field training at Little Nishisackawick Creek in Frenchtown, 9:30am-4pm
  • May 11 : field accreditation/testing at Montgomery Veterans Park, 9:30a-3:30p

In order to receive the certification, participants must attend all 5 sessions. The certification is free for participants and the accreditation lasts for 3 years. We would do our 1st sampling together in Fall 2023 and then twice a year thereafter. Once certified, all participants will be able to lead educational experiences in the Paulins Kill (and beyond) and collect scientific water quality data needed by the NJDEP to comply with the Clean Water Act.

Although it is mandatory to attend all 5 sessions in order to be certified – some accommodations or exceptions can be made on a case by case basis.
