Klamath Riverkeeper is excited to bring citizen monitoring to the Shasta watershed in 2010 with our first citizen water quality monitoring initiative. We’ll start by training citizens to collect water quality data at points on Yreka Creek and the Shasta River this spring & summer. The goals of the program are to: 1) Fill a recognized scientific monitoring gap in the Klamath and Shasta River watersheds, 2) Add monitoring capacity to existing and future restoration and stream assessment projects, 3) Provide an educational outreach opportunity to the public in the City of Yreka.
