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 will kick off the 8th field season of our popular Water Quality Monitoring Program this coming May!
Summer 2019 offers a great opportunity to get involved in a fun and engaging volunteer project with Lake Pend Oreille Waterkeeper! We're now 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 sports and are passionate about active stewardship, this volunteer program will offer you lots of fun and the chance to participate in a rewarding scientific effort.
Interested in becoming a Citizen Scientist with the WQMP? LPOW invites you to attend a volunteer info meeting to learn more about the program and how to get involved! Stay tuned for more details.
