Watershed Watch

Saturday, October 5, 2019 | 10 a.m. - 12 p.m.

Watershed Watch is a one-day water quality monitoring educational event that aims to raise the awareness of citizens about the health of the lower Boise River watershed. The event is usually held the last Saturday in September. The Fall 2018 event data can be found here. Each fall, individuals, families and groups take part in the watershed-wide effort to collect water quality data along the shores of the Boise River, ponds, reservoirs and creeks. By gathering water quality data, participants help us get a "snapshot" of the health of the Boise River and contribute to long-term watershed monitoring. Knowledgeable trainers are matched up with participants to monitor select locations. See a map of all locations here. Check back in Summer 2019 to register for the 2019 event.
