LOWELL | Volunteers are needed to monitor streams and rivers in Indiana for water quality, and a Hoosier River Watch Workshop set for Friday at Buckley Homestead County Park, 3606 Belshaw Road, will provide participants with the resources and skills needed to become part of this project.

The free workshop, co-sponsored by the Lake County Soil and Water Conservation District and Northwestern Regional Planning Commission, will be held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday and is open to the first 15 registrants 19 and older. Call the LCSWCD office at (219) 663-7042 to register.

Participants will learn how to conduct chemical tests, calculate water flow, identify invertebrates, record data and enter findings to the data base.

Dress for the weather, including waders or shoes that you can get wet, and bring a sack lunch and beverage.
