Two classes have now been held this fall to train volunteer water sentinels in the Blanchard River. This is a cooperative effort in partnership with the Blanchard River Watershed Partnership. A third class is expected to be held this winter, to train a total of 20 volunteers in this region.
The Blanchard River has multiple small creeks that come together and feed into the main stem of the river. Each one of these 50+ creek intersections will be monitored by a Sierra Club trained water sentinel. The BRWP hopes to use this water quality data to assess the health of its sub-watersheds.
Anyone interested in volunteering for this region, may contact either Ann Keefe, Lake Erie Conservation Coordinator at email@example.com or Phil Martin of the BRWP via phone at 419.422.6487.
