Middle Susquehanna Riverkeeper has teamed up with Trout Unlimited to conduct water quality assessments of streams where there is pipeline and other linear construction activities throughout the watershed. Our primary focus is erosion and sedimentation due to earth-moving activities. The first training is Saturday, November 19, at the Montour Preserve in Danville (Columbia County).
Middle Susquehanna Riverkeeper is looking to field six (6) teams.
Registration is required and class size is limited. Training includes both classroom work and field experience.
