Water Quality Monitoring and
Creek Week Registration Is Closed Until 2014
Register by March 29th using the Online Form to the left. Your information will be sent to our administrative volunteers who will contact you within 3 business days to confirm your registration, provide you with instructions, and answer any questions you may have.
Your group’s help is needed to gather data on Sacramento County’s Creeks. The water monitoring sites are located in all parts of the County. This activity is for groups of about 6 people - ages 12 and up.
The group’s leader will need to pick up a water quality testing kit by April 5th.
Depending on the site your group is assigned to, there may also be an opportunity to clean the creek and banks of man-made garbage.
Use the checklist below so that you come prepared against the natural and man-made elements. Please come prepared to get a little muddy. Many of the clean-up sites have poision oak.
- Your own drinking water
- A bucket or re-usable shopping bag to collect light trash (per person)
- Comfortable, washable clothes
- Long pants and long sleeves
- Hat and Sunscreen
- Gloves (work or gardening type)
- Shoes that can get wet and muddy
- Waterproof boots (optional)
- Grabbing tool or rake (optional)
IMPORTANT: All children must be with a responsible adult as the debris, water, or slippery stream banks may be hazardous. If you bring a child or group of children, your most important job is to supervise and keep them safe.
Thank you for making it possible for them to have this experience!
