      Stream Monitoring Information Exchange (SMIE) Training

      EQI is currently seeking volunteers to attend a training workshop for its invertebrate monitoring project, the Stream Monitoring Information Exchange (SMIE). It will be held on Sunday, September 29th from 9am-4pm at UNC-Asheville. SMIE volunteers will be taught basic stream ecology, macroinvertebrate identification, field sampling protocols, and how to identify and report threats to water quality. Once trained, volunteers work in small groups to sample two or more sites each spring and fall (about 10 hours of annual service). Volunteers do not need to have any prior experience and waders are provided. RSVP is required though, so please email or call 828-357-7411 to reserve your spot.
