Stream Team Citizen Science Program

Stream Team is a citizen based monitoring program built modeling how WEN got its start back in 1996. This group of individuals heads out every Sunday during the fall and spring seasons to monitor streams and rivers in local watersheds, given safe stream conditions. Stream Team follows Montana Volunteer Water Monitoring Project protocols while in the field.

Volunteering with this program you can gain experience:
-monitoring CFS
-bank full
-bedload assessments
-pH
-DO
-conductivity
-riparian plant assessment
-macro-invertebrate assessment

Currently Stream Team is monitoring Rattlesnake Creek. Volunteers working with Stream Team are required to attend a volunteer training. For more information on how to join our Stream Team click here.
