KINGSTON — A training session for stream monitors is scheduled from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Jan. 27 at Stillwaters Environmental Center, 26059 Barber Cut Off Road, Kingston.

Cost is free. Please pre-register at 360-297-1226 or info@stillwaters environmentalcenter.org.

Monitoring volunteers are always needed. All monitoring volunteers — new, seasoned or those just considering it —are welcome. A brief overview will be given of the monitoring opportunities such as monthly stream and estuary water-quality monitoring, monthly bird surveys, plus the wide variety of habitat restoration monitoring, associated with the removal of the culverts on South and West Kingston roads.

The “Cutthroats of Carpenter Creek” was formed in 2000 as a program of Stillwaters Environmental Center. The Cutthroats work to protect water quality and fish and wildlife habitat in the Carpenter Creek watershed.

Trained volunteers collect data monthly at four sites on Carpenter Creek, and at four sites in the estuary and salt marsh. A monthly bird survey is done every first Monday. Volunteers are used in all of these monitoring programs.

If you would like to be a citizen scientist, come to the training or contact Stillwaters at 360-297-1226 or info@stillwatersenviron mentalcenter.org, or go to www.stillwatersenviron mentalcenter.org.
