Join the Stream Team in the Ventura River Watershed this Saturday May 6th

Stream Team” is Channelkeeper’s volunteer-based creek water quality monitoring program. Volunteers visit established sites throughout the Ventura River to gather data on water quality while also getting better acquainted with their local creeks. Training is provided to all new volunteers.

Volunteers test several water quality parameters in the field using hand-held portable meters, and also take samples that are later analyzed for bacteria and nutrients in our laboratory. New volunteers are always welcome. Contact or call  (805) 563-3377 ext.5 if you have any questions.
