Water Monitoring Citizen Science Project

  • Glen Echo Park 510 Cliffside Drive Columbus, OH, 43202 United States (map)

The Cap City Biohackers will continue their citizen science water monitoring events this year with Friends of the Lower Olentangy Watershed (FLOW). Our group will be testing a tributary site, along the Olentangy River, during the months of June-September. This is a citizen science project that allows the community to monitor water and habitat quality within their region. With this you will learn about the different types of pollution, methods for assessing water chemistry, and macroinvertebrate identification. All members and non-members are welcome! We will be meeting at Glen Echo Park ( Feel free to call Jess (330-418-5343) or David (937-416-2888) if you have questions that morning. Just as a reminder, in order to host the event, we need to be rain-free for 24 hours prior so stay tuned!
