The Rideau Valley Conservation Authority is looking for volunteers to help with field sampling during the month of October.
Volunteers will gain experience with the following:
- Field experience
- Secchi disk
- Composite sampler
- Van Doren
- Kick and sweep techniques for benthic invertebrates
- Water flow measurements
Field sampling will take place Monday-Friday, typically between 8 am to 4 pm, however some days may go longer. There is no set number of days that volunteers will be required to do.
Volunteers should be comfortable around water, wearing chest waders, wading through streams and touching benthic invertebrates.
Volunteers will need to arrange their own transportation to the Rideau Valley Conservation Authority office located at 3889 Rideau Valley Drive in Manotick.
Please contact Sarah MacLeod Neilson at or Adrienne Lewis at if you are interested in volunteering or by phone 613-692-3571
