Utilizing Bioassessments and Citizen Science for Stewardship in the Truckee River Watershed

The Adopt a Stream program of the Truckee River Watershed Council has grown from a one-day monitoring event to quarterly monitoring and a robust bioassessment program. Approximately 100 volunteers participate in the monitoring program annually. Volunteers monitor key tributaries and a handful of sites along the Truckee River. TRWC uses the data to identify sites for restoration and stormwater improvements […]
