Habitat Assessment Training: Manitowoc

May 21, 2024

2:30 pm – 5:00 pm
Location: Manitowoc, WI

WAV stream monitoring trainings are hands-on group field trainings that are outdoors on a wadeable stream! Trainings are open to people of all abilities. No experience is necessary, but habitat assessments are recommended for returning WAV volunteers. Everyone will be invited to wade into the stream to collect data as part of the training. Habitat assessments do require volunteers to wade in the stream a significant distance up the stream (300ft – 1000ft) in order to assess seven in-stream variables. We also have roles for those who want to keep their feet dry, such as recording data on the WAV datasheet. All monitoring equipment for the training will be provided.
