Save Our Streams Workshop

Published Feb. 12, 2020

    

(Knoxville, Iowa) –   On Saturday, April 4th, the Izaak Walton League is partnering with the US Army Corps of Engineers at Lake Red Rock to provide a certification workshop for anyone interested in becoming a Save Our Streams water quality monitor. The workshop will be held from 9:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m. at the Red Rock Visitor Center.

Save Our Streams (SOS) is a fun way to test water quality by collecting and identifying underwater critters called macroinvertebrates. Volunteers across the state monitor the health of their local creeks and streams to educate the public and provide data to partners, agencies, and local organizations.

To register, please visit https://LakeRedRockSaveOurStreams.eventbrite.com. The cost to participate is $10 per person. Dress for the weather, as we will be doing the field component rain or shine. Please bring rubber boots, waders, or shoes that can get wet. All class materials will be provided, including ID books. Please bring a water bottle and packed lunch.

For more information, please contact SOS Coordinator Zach Moss: zmoss@iwla.org or 515-249-7213.
