Clallam Streamkeepers group seeks volunteers

Streamkeepers, Clallam County’s volunteer stream monitoring program, is seeking new volunteers to help collect stream health data, perform data entry and analysis, and conduct education and outreach.
As the program continues to expand, there is a continuing need for volunteers. New volunteers join existing stream teams and perform quarterly stream monitoring and other stewardship activities, on streams throughout the county — or may volunteer to provide other kinds of program support, both outdoors and indoors.
Streamkeepers’ annual training begins in June and consists of an introductory evening session and two full-day classes including both indoor and outdoor instruction.
Trainees learn how watersheds provide services to fish, wildlife and people; what threatens watersheds; and why and how they are monitored. No previous experience or special equipment required.
Group members schedule training around the availability of the trainees. To participate, call Streamkeepers at 417-2281 or e-mail streamkeepers@co.clallam.wa.us.
