Citizen Science Opportunity
RiverWatch Training Workshop registration in now open. You may register using this link.
Every year since 2009, the USRC has participated in the Illinois RiverWatch program. We monitor 4 sites on the Sangamon River and 2 tributaries to the Sangamon. In addition to collecting habitat information, we collect macro-invertebrates to be identified and counted at an open lab later in the year. This is a great way to learn about aquatic invertebrates and stream ecology, while making a meaningful contribution to science.
The cost to for the workshop is $50.00. If cost is a barrier to your participation or if you have other questions, please contact me, Bruce Colravy at We have a limited number of sponsorships to cover costs. Sponsorships will be given on a first come, first serve basis.
