Wanted: Volunteers to Gather BWCAW Water and Wildlife Information


The Friends of the Boundary Waters Wilderness needs your help in gathering information about water quality and wildlife in and around the Boundary Waters Wilderness. The BWCAW region is treasured by many – and the long-term well-being of this place requires understanding how healthy it is and recognizing changes that may occur over time. We are looking for citizen volunteers willing to gather some of this information over Summer 2017. We will provide the simple training necessary to help you be an important citizen scientist. No prior experience necessary – just an ability to follow some basic instructions and a love of the BWCAW and the region. Tasks include taking water quality samples from lakes and streams and checking trail cameras.
 
For more information and to sign up, contact Betsy Daub by email or call 612-332-9630.
