DeKalb County Adopt-A-Stream is hosting a workshop to get citizens involved in protecting DeKalb County’s water resources. The workshop is designed to train volunteers on how to collect water samples from DeKalb County streams and how to interpret water quality data.
The workshop will be held on Saturday, June 7, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Hall Historical and Environmental Education Center, 2003 Robert E. Lee Blvd., Stone Mountain.
The focus will be on bacteria monitoring. At the conclusion of the workshop, volunteers will earn a certificate that will allow them to enter information into a statewide database. There is no fee for the class, but pre-registration is required and limited to the first 20 people.
DeKalb County Adopt-A-Stream is a volunteer water quality program coordinated by the DeKalb County Department of Watershed Management in conjunction with the Georgia Department of Natural Resources.
