Become a Guardian of the Taunton River and its tributaries by joining the TRWA sampling team!
We do our annual refresher and new volunteer training on the last Saturday morning the month before the program is due to start for the year. The training will be Saturday, March 25, 2023, 9:30 – Noon at our Sweets Knoll State Park office this year.
This year the first monitoring day will be Tuesday morning 4/11/23 (second Tuesday of the month). We collect one sample per month April through October (takes about 2 hours for sample collection and drop off by 8:30 am).
We are looking forward to seeing our returning veterans and some new potential volunteers interested in helping the sampling program and learning about the environment. We will go over the procedures, answer questions, make sure everyone has what they need, and assign new folks to teams convenient to where they live to fill in for volunteers who have moved away. The new volunteers need no experience or technical knowledge just a desire to part of an enthusiastic team doing something important to save our rivers. More information may be found on the flyer here and at the Water Quality Monitoring Tab at the top of the TRWA website home page.
I’m looking forward to seeing you. Call or email the TRWA office if you have any questions.
