Volunteers who have successfully completed the Introductory workshop and have submitted the Site Selection data sheet, Stream Discharge and Macroinvertebrate data, are eligible to attend a Level 1 workshop. This is the workshop through which volunteers are provided chemical monitoring equipment. This level of training covers physical monitoring (i.e., visual survey), chemical monitoring and reviews biological monitoring. Like the Introductory workshop, this class includes a midday field trip to a nearby stream where techniques to conduct a visual survey and measure water chemistry are practiced. Level 1 workshops are offered in the late summer and fall of each year.
