MADISON – Join Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources experts Wednesday, April 19, at noon for an online chat about citizen-based monitoring opportunities in Wisconsin.
A DNR online chat starting at noon Wednesday is a great opportunity to learn about citizen-based resource monitoring in Wisconsin such as monitoring dissolved oxygen in the Ten Mile Creek Watershed. .
Volunteers throughout the state can participate in citizen-based monitoring by engaging in activities such as sampling water quality, reporting turtle road crossings, recording observations of breeding birds, and more. These citizen-based monitoring efforts contribute to the understanding, management and conservation of Wisconsin’s natural resources.
The chat will run from noon to 1pm, and members of the public are invited to submit any questions about citizen-based monitoring during that time. Visit dnr.wi.gov and search keyword “chat” to submit questions and view responses from DNR experts. Here, you can also view past chats and sign up to receive email notifications.
