Free Stream Assessment Training (All Summer)

GSWA made our Stream Assessment Training Class as a take-home guide.

This self-paced, four-part series will cover everything you need to know to become a fully trained visual-stream assessment volunteer and ready to conduct an assessment! Not ready to commit to becoming a volunteer? No problem, feel free to enjoy this training course for your own personal river knowledge.

Session 1: Explore the types of streams in our area, different characteristics of a stream and why they are important, and how to draw a basic sketch of your stream.
