RiverWatch Spring 2017 Workshop Carbondale

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 indicators of water quality like stream habitat and the diversity of macroinvertebrates. This workshop will take place at Southern Illilnois University Carbondale inside room 304 of the Life Science II building. 

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.

Registration and Payment Deadline. Registration and payment must be made by March 26, 2017 to secure your seat and materials for the workshop. Anyone registering or paying after this date is not guaranteed admittance. 

Payment Refund Policy. Workshop registration payments are fully refundable (-2% processing fee if paying by credit card) if refund is requested by March 26, 2017. Refunds requested after March 26, 2017 WILL NOT be granted.
