You asked, and we listened: the Columbia Basin Watershed Network is mixing it up this year! Instead of you coming to us for our fall get together, we’re coming to you! We’re pleased to be hosting a series of events in Nelson (Taghum), New Denver, Invermere and Cranbrook.

Not everything has changed though – we want you to share results of water monitoring and other activities you’ve been up to so we can celebrate success and learn from each other. We’ve invited the coordinator of the Columbia Basin Water Monitoring Collaborative and Open Source Data Hub so we can exchange information about the Network and give feedback on the future of water monitoring in the Basin. We’ll be featuring member updates, learning from our summer mapping program and networking opportunities!

Graduate student Rachel Pierson from the University of Vermont, will also be joining us on tour to follow up on her research project on motivations and outcomes of volunteer monitoring. She is looking to conduct follow up interviews of volunteers who responded to her online survey!

It’s an exciting time to be working with water in the Columbia Basin!
