Nature Vision water monitors re-certified!

Sno-King Watershed Council’s Eric Adman held water monitor re-certification training for Nature Vision staff on Friday, March 12, 2021 on the lovely grounds of Brightwater Center in Woodinville, Washington.

Nature Vision brings environmental education to schools and green spaces, serving over 70,000 PreK-12 students each year in King and Snohomish Counties. We are grateful for our long partnership with Nature Vision–together, we are working to engage the next generation of water watchers and watershed stewards through our training and their incredible programming.

The goal of Sno-King Watershed Council’s Water Watchers program and training is to foster watershed stewardship in our communities and empower individuals to be advocates for our enviornment. Trained volunteers monitor the physical, chemical, and biological indicators of watershed health. Monitors can use their data for protection and restoration of watersheds, streams, and lakes, advocacy for the improvement of water quality and public health, and to implement environmental education programs.

Sno-King Watershed Council’s recertification water monitor training with Nature Vision last week means that Nature Vision staff can stay current with their own skills, helping them to be effective and inspiring teachers.

It was a fantastic day in the Little Bear Creek Watershed. Thank you, Nature Vision, for caring for our watershed with us!

Funding for our Water Monitor Training Program comes from the King County Wastewater Treatment Division Waterworks Grant Program.
