Discover the hidden worlds living in our local streams! If you have a desire to make a positive environmental impact in your own backyard, the Patapsco Heritage Greenway needs you.

Currently, there is little, if any, known water quality data for the hundreds of streams located in the lower Patapsco River watershed. By learning how to determine water quality through various observations and tests, you can help the Greenway evaluate a streams' health.

Workshops offer "hands on" training. Volunteers are taught how to find, collect, sort and identify aquatic creatures that are water quality indicators. Volunteers also perform and evaluate some non-hazardous water quality tests.

Training is free and limited to committed adult volunteers who agree to monitor a stream within the lower Patapsco River watershed area. For registration information, go to www. patapscoheritagegreenway.org or email info@patapscoheritagegreenway.org.
