2018 Watershed Watch

Saturday, September 29
10:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.

Become a citizen scientist and help diagnose the health of the Boise River! 

This fall, individuals, families and groups will 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. No experience necessary, just a desire to have fun and learn about your impacts to water quality. All ages welcome!  A knowledgeable trainer will meet you at your assigned location to assist with water quality monitoring. See all locations that are available to be monitored.

Three adults and two children huddle around table outside as they analyze water samples.


Register by September 19 through the link below or by calling (208) 608-7300.


Specific yearly data can be requested by contacting Boise Watershed.
