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.

Registration is due by Feb. 27 at the University of Illinois Extension website at web.extension.illinois.edu/hmrs. For more information, contact Cheryl Geitner, 4-H youth development educator, at 309-756-9978 or cgeitner@illinois.edu.
