The workshop consists of 6 hours of classroom instruction and 1-2 hours on a stream to demonstrate sampling techniques.  Chemical Monitoring, Visual Survey and a review of Macroinvertebrate sampling techniques will be covered at the Level 1 workshops.

In order to attend the Level 1 workshop you must have completed an Introductory Level workshop, conducted and submitted a site selection datasheet, stream discharge and biological data you collected.  If you have not submitted your data, you can submit it with the registration form for the Level 1 workshops.  Due to the high demand and limited space for these classes, individuals under the age of 18 need to be accompanied by a sponsoring adult in order to attend.

Class size will be limited and is filled on a first come first serve basis.
