Become a citizen scientist

From reports

Local residents are invited to join more than 150 volunteers who will assist in monitoring water quality at 100 sites throughout Kosciusko, Noble and Whitley counties in one afternoon. The Watershed Foundation and the Kosciusko County Soil & Water Conservation District will host annual Snapshot Day  on Wednesday, September 18, from 2 to 6 p.m.

Snapshot Day Volunteers are citizen scientists monitoring temperature, dissolved oxygen, and transparency at local sites. Participants also collect water samples for analysis of bacteria, nitrate, phosphate and pH levels. The valuable data collected by Snapshot Day volunteers will be used to drive action for clean water. Sites have been assessed for their safety and difficulty to access - and TWF will have a wide range for every ability! Whether you have ever waded in a stream or not, there is a site for you. The estimated time commitment will be 2 to 3 1/2 hours.

CLICK HERE to register for your preferred location. At registration, TWF will provide you with the sampling materials and more information on your testing sites.
