County Citizens' Volunteer Monitoring Program
Once again, Linda Burke will head Bedford Audubon's
participation in the Westchester County Citizens' Water Monitoring Program.
The 2008 Westchester County Citizens' Volunteer Monitoring
Training Schedule has just been finalized! This exciting program provides an
opportunity for citizen volunteers to help the County create a baseline of water
quality data on streams throughout the county. It also provides a great
opportunity for Westchester's towns and villages to fulfill some of their
Phase II Stormwater Public Participation and Involvement requirements.
The training takes place on a full Saturday from 9:00 am
to 4:00 pm.
We will spend the whole day outside learning and practicing how to use the
stream monitoring equipment.
The training dates and locations are:
Saturday, April 26 - Hilltop Hanover Farm, Yorktown
Saturday, May 3 - Rye Nature Center, Rye
Saturday, May 10 - Ward Pound Ridge Reservation, Cross
Saturday, May 17 - Teatown Lake Reservation, Ossining
To register for a training session, please email Susan
Darling at firstname.lastname@example.org.
She will send specific details about each training prior to the event, so it is
important that you register at least one week in advance. Please feel free to share this brochure with others
who might be interested in participating.
If you have any questions, please contact Susan Darling
or call (914) 995-6535.
