The South Sound GREEN watershed education program needs you! Do you enjoy getting outdoors to explore your watershed? Do you want to engage the next generation of watershed stewards? If so, consider joining our Water Watchers volunteer program!

Water Watchers will be trained in water quality monitoring to provide assistance in field monitoring, and to help facilitate testing on two field days. During the month of October, Water Watchers will join local teachers in the classroom to get students ready for field monitoring. In October and February volunteers will assist a class at their designated stream for monitoring.

As a Water Watcher you will receive a monthly newsletter highlighting community speakers/events/workshops. You will gain a thorough understanding of our watersheds which will enable you to make conscience decisions to help protect Puget Sound! Lastly, a volunteer appreciation event will round out our monitoring season.

Water Watcher trainings are held each October and February in preparation for water quality monitoring events.  For more information including upcoming dates, please contact us at ssgreen@thurstoncd.com or (360)754-3588, ext. 108.
