Ivy Tech to have Riverwatch workshop

Ivy Tech Community College and the Indiana Department of Environmental Management will host a free Hoosier Riverwatch workshop from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday starting at the college’s new Moravec Hall, 4475 Central Ave. The workshop is open to the public. Participants must be age 18 and older.

Hoosier Riverwatch is an IDEM program that certifies citizens of Indiana in becoming active stewards of state’s water resources through watershed education, water monitoring, and clean-up activities. Certified individuals can collect water quality data and submit it to a state database for water chemistry and insect community analysis.

The workshop will begin with a morning classroom session. In the afternoon, workshop participants will conduct a practice collection on the Flatrock River at Owen’s Bend Park.

RSVPs are required and the number of participants is limited. To RSVP, or for more information, contact Tom Sobat at [email protected]
