Community Science Workshop - MOW the Grasse!

Event date and time
July 26, 2024 - 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM

Join Nature Up North to learn more about how community members, that's you, can monitor the waterways near you! Our MOW the Grasse (Monitor Our Water) community science initiative provides an opportunity for hands-on experience with the tools and methods needed to check water quality. We'll walk you through the step-by-step process of checking physical conditions (temperature, flow, and others), chemical conditions (pH, agricultural runoff), and finally biological conditions (macroinvertebrates, and e-coli). Finally, we'll be able to draw conclusions about water quality based on what we find the day of the tests!

This workshop will take place in Massena, NY. The exact location is still to be determined.

Make sure to register so we know how many testing kits we need to bring. Click on this link to register:https://www.natureupnorth.org/form/massena-july-26-mow-signup
