Fall is here and our 2022 monitoring season is wrapping up. If you are a new volunteer interested in joining WAV as a stream monitoring volunteer in 2023, here’s how to get started:

  1. Complete the Online Introduction to WAV course to become familiar with our volunteer program and the baseline stream monitoring methods.
  2. Contact a WAV Local Coordinator in your county. Ask about field training opportunities they are offering in your area this spring. Don’t delay! WAV field trainings for new volunteers typically run from mid-April through early June.
  3. Sign up for a field training. Some field trainings for new volunteers are public events and some are one-on-one opportunities – it depends on the WAV Local Coordinator. Check out the public volunteer trainings below happening across Wisconsin and register! Trainings are open to people of all ages and abilities – everyone is welcome! Minors must be accompanied by an adult who can provide supervision and support.
  4. Don’t forget to subscribe to our WAV news email list to stay in the know.
