A fun opportunity for you to be a Citizen Scientist!

At a time when our streams are heavily affected by changes in land use,
it is critical for us to keep a close eye on them.
This is where YOU come in!

WE NEED STREAM SEARCH VOLUNTEERS!  We need your help to gather information 
about our Kent County streams. Volunteers assist trained team leaders in 
collecting scientific information in our streams. You can just show up and 
help, wading in streams wearing WMEAC's waders and catching creatures in 

Last spring over 100 volunteers turned out to help with Stream Search, and 
we gathered information on twenty-six sites all over Kent County. Families, 
individuals, college students, and high school students participated...and 
had a great time! Join us.

Fall 2001 Stream Search Event:
October 13, Saturday, 8:30 a.m.-12:30 noon.

STAGING LOCATION: The fall Stream Search will be organized from the campus 
of Aquinas College in Grand Rapids. Leaders and volunteers will gather at 
8:30 a.m. to organize teams, register, and pick up equipment. Leaders return 
the equipment and data to the same location when they are finished. Enter 
the campus at the Fulton Street entrance and follow the green Stream Search 
signs. Campus map:
