EDTR 271 - Stream Monitoring and Water Quality

Provides students with the materials and knowledge to do a habitat and biological survey on a wadeable stream to assess water quality trends. Emphasis is placed on stream ecology and macroinvertebrate identification, as well as hands-on stream sampling, so participants will be competent to independently perform a RiverWatch/Stream Discovery survey. Participants will receive macroinvertebrate identification cards, a stream monitoring manual, and access to stream monitoring kits to be used in a stream survey. Pass/Fail grades will be given. Prerequisite(s): None.
