Green Mountain Conservation Group (GMCG) and the Saco River Corridor Commission (SRCC) are gearing up for the 2024 Regional Interstate Volunteers for the Ecosystems and Rivers of Saco (RIVERS) Water Quality Monitoring Program – a summer biweekly tributary sampling program in the Saco/Ossipee Watershed.

The RIVERS program connects volunteers from New Hampshire and Maine to their local rivers and streams. For 22 years, volunteers have contributed to ongoing research projects and have helped GMCG and SRCC monitor the health of local aquatic ecosystems.

In preparation for the 2024 monitoring season, GMCG and SRCC will offer a RIVERS Volunteer Training Session on Tuesday April 23 and Saturday April 27 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the Blue Heron House – 236 Huntress Bridge Road Effingham NH. RIVERS Volunteers will learn or refresh their water quality skills, practice using monitoring equipment, and meet other volunteers. In order to provide the highest quality data for our records and to comply with our EPA QAPP protocol, we strongly encourage all volunteers to attend a session.  Sessions will be outside (unless severe inclement weather) so please dress appropriately!
