This year, the Cap City Biohackers will be acquiring a tributary site, along the Olentangy River, to monitor annually. This is part of a nationwide citizen science project through the EPA that allows the community to monitor water and habitat quality within their region. Friends of the Lower Olentangy Watershed (FLOW) will be providing sentinel training, free of charge, to anyone in our group that is interested. With this you will learn about the different types of pollution, methods for assessing water chemistry, and macroinvertebrate identification. There will be two sessions, one covering the pollution and chemistry (June 12th) and the second will be a hands-on macro training at our site (mid-July). Below is a link to our tributary site, Adena Brook A. https://www.google.com/maps/d/viewer?mid=1OCXPHgUi5R4aHf_9iITGAz5MBSo&ll=40.04731220000001%2C-83.01469090000006&z=11
