World Water Monitoring Challenge - Sunnyvale

Saturday, April 4, 2020, 10:00 AM

World Water Monitoring Challenge - West Valley Elementary School, Sunnyvale Come learn about the watershed in which you live, how watersheds work, and what you can do to protect important creek habitat! You will have the opportunity to test the quality of water in Stevens Creek using simple equipment and through a biomonitoring activity, which are easy and fun to carry out. Looking at which aquatic bugs live in this part of the creek can tell us how clean the water is - finding too many pollution tolerant bugs could mean a pollution problem. This is a great activity for young families, students looking for volunteer hours, and community members who are just curious about their local creek. This event is rain or shine, unless otherwise notified. Waivers/Registration: All participants must register & approve the online waiver through this Eventbrite page. Youth under 18 must have their legal guardian approve the waiver on their behalf. Volunteers under the age of 13 must be accompanied by an adult. Parking: There is plenty of parking at the school and on the street. Prepare for the Outdoors: Sturdy close-toed shoes that can get dirty Hat/sunscreen or rain gear/boots Plan for potential exposure to sun No experience is necessary! Grassroots Ecology encourages people from all identities and backgrounds to participate in our programs. Many of our programs are outdoors and involve moving and working in a variety of landscapes.
