MONITOR WATER QUALITY THROUGH CREEKWATCHERS

Volunteer to help the Wicomico Creekwatchers effort! This group of volunteers samples water quality and clarity at select sites along the Wicomico River, its tributaries, and local ponds every two weeks from March to November every year. The samples are analyzed by biology and environmental studies students at Salisbury University under faculty supervision. The resulting data are evaluated to document long-term trends in the health of our waterways. In addition to volunteers to sample on a regular basis, we need volunteers to provide backup for samplers who have to miss their regular sampling.

For further information or to volunteer, call Susan Parker at 443-783-1190 or email: creekwatchers@gmail.com
