|Would you like to help gather data for the Lake Monroe Watershed Plan? We are looking for volunteers to assist the watershed coordinator, Maggie Sullivan, with a windshield survey of the watershed.
Working in small teams of 2-3, we will drive to various stream crossings in the watershed and document conditions in the stream using a standardized data form. Is the water clear or turbid? Are there signs of erosion? Is there a vegetated buffer on the stream banks or is the soil bare? What is the land use?
Training and data forms will be provided. Each trip will be scheduled for approximately 3 hours and will target different portions of the watershed in Monroe, Brown, and Jackson counties.
If you are interested, please contact watershed coordinator Maggie Sullivan at email@example.com or by phone at (812) 558-0217.
