The Richland Soil and Water Conservation District is looking for individuals to participate in Precipitation Monitor Volunteer Training.

Volunteers record rainfall and snowfall from work or home. According to the RSWCD website, the data that is collected “…is vital to identifying geographic locations of rain fall and snow fall in respect to the watershed you are recording precipitation from.

Our network of volunteer data shows the amount of surface water your watershed collects annually. This information is used to assist communities by estimating the amount of precipitation during an event that may cause flooding reactions to your receiving streams and rivers.”

RSWCD provides the equipment and training. Internet access is required. This is a great citizen-scientist volunteer opportunity that doesn’t require a lot of time.

Please R.S.V.P. by February 12 to 419.747.8686.

Send us your news — of an announcement, event,
club news, fundraiser – whatever! It’s easy to do online.
