Did you know that our Citizen Scientists have monitored water quality at 15 locations across Lake Pend Oreille and the Pend Oreille River since 2012?
LPOW staff and volunteers are well into the 8th field season of our Water Quality Monitoring Program!
Summer 2019 offers a great opportunity to get involved in a fun and engaging volunteer project with Lake Pend Oreille Waterkeeper! We're still accepting new volunteers to become Citizen Scientists with our well-established Water Quality Monitoring Program (WQMP); an effort to measure changes in water quality across the Lake Pend Oreille and the Pend Oreille River over time. If you enjoy water and are passionate about active stewardship, this volunteer program offers the chance to participate in a rewarding scientific effort.
Interested in becoming a Citizen Scientist with the WQMP? Give us a call (208)597-7188 or email Chantilly@LPOW.org.
