On Saturday, April 4, the Izaak Walton League is partnering with the US Army Corps of Engineers at Lake Red Rock to provide a certification workshop for anyone interested in becoming a Save Our Streams (SOS) water quality monitor.

The workshop will be held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Red Rock Visitor Center.

SOS is a fun way to test water quality by collecting and identifying underwater critters called macroinvertebrates. Volunteers across the state monitor the health of their local creeks and streams to educate the public and provide data to partners, agencies and local organizations.

To register, please visit https://LakeRedRockSaveOurStreams.eventbrite.com. Please bring rubber boots, waders or shoes that can get wet as they will be doing the field component, rain or shine. All class materials will be provided, including ID books. Please bring a water bottle and packed lunch.

For more information, please contact SOS Coordinator Zach Moss at zmoss@iwla.org or 515-249-7213.
