Teens and adults are invited to a training session to be part of the RiverWatch Stream Discovery Program. Free training will be offered from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. March 9 at Black Hawk College, Room 204, Moline.
University of Illinois Extension 4-H has teamed up with the Illinois RiverWatch Network to offer the free training to junior and senior high teens and adult volunteers. They will be trained in stream-monitoring and will help monitor water quality of Illinois streams.
A lecture from 9 a.m. to noon (bring a sack lunch) will be followed by a field training session at a local stream from 1-4 p.m. A donation by Archer Daniels Midland will cover the training costs.
