The Watershed Foundation’s second annual Snapshot Monitoring Day was held on Thursday, September 20, 2018. In four hours, 270 volunteers (including students from 5 schools) took stream samples and water quality measurements at 90 stream monitoring sites across the entire watershed. It was a great way to connect with new and experienced volunteers, get their feet wet and engaged with TWF, and collect data that will be used to identify and fix problems.
A subset of sites in the Warsaw/Winona Lake areas that were sampled by Grace College in 2017 did not get sampled in 2018.
Special thanks to our generous founding sponsors: K21 Health Foundation, Arrowhead RC&D, and KEYS- a program of the Kosciusko Community Foundation. This event would not be possible without the support of our special partners: the Clean Waters Partnership, Kosciusko County Soil and Water Conservation District, the Upper Lakes of the Tippecanoe River Watershed Association (ULTRA) and the following schools (North Webster, Madison, Claypool, Lincoln, Jefferson and Washington STEM).
