RiverWatch Mussel Monitoring Workshop Warrenville Summer 2017 

The Illinois RiverWatch Network is a statewide, non-profit, volunteer stream monitoring program. Volunteers are trained and certified as “Citizen Scientists” to monitor and protect a local stream. Upon completing training and becoming certified, volunteers adopt a stream site and examine freshwater mussel populations as indicators of stream health. This Workshop will be held at the Urban Stream Research Center in Warrenville, IL. Driving directions can be found here

This workshop is primarily for adults (18+) and 4-H members. Kids under the age of 18 are allowed to attend with an adult chaperone, and are not required to register, but do need to be noted on their chaperone's registration form. 

Special instructions for 4-H members. 4-H members must select "payment by check" and list their organization as their 4-H group so that the Illinois 4-H office can pay your registration fee.
