       World Water Monitoring Challenge, Sunnyvale

      Come learn more about the watershed in which you live, how watersheds work, and what you can do to protect important creek habitat.

      Who: This is a great activity for young families, students looking for volunteer hours, and community members who are just plain curious about their local creek. Volunteers of all ages are welcome; minors under 18 require a signed waiver and those under high school age require an accompanying adult unless prior approval is obtained. Preregistration is required.Groups larger than four should contact to register.

      What: Volunteers are invited to come help us determine the quality of water in Stevens Creek with monitoring activities which are easy and fun to carry out. Even the youngest volunteers will enjoy performing tests with our color-changing indicator kits. Participants will also have the opportunity to do a bit of biomonitoring by looking at which aquatic bugs live in this part of the creek - finding too many pollution tolerant bugs could mean a pollution problem. Monitoring results will be shared with communities around the world which are holding their own World Water Monitoring Challenge events.

      When: Saturday, October 19, 10:00 am to noon.

      Where: West Valley Elementary School, 1635 Bellville Way, Sunnyvale. Park in front of the school and then walk through the playing fields behind the school and on back to the creek area by the pedestrian bridge.

      Bring: Volunteers under the age of 18 must bring a signed waiver. Please wear comfy shoes and bring a refillable water bottle.
