FLOW relies heavily on volunteer participation to create positive change in our watershed. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, we do have to limit numbers at any one event, so we are not posting events on the calendar at this time. Please contact us for information on how you can volunteer (email info@olentangywatershed.org or call 614-267-3386). We have a wide variety of opportunities planned for the upcoming months that should fit your schedule and skill set, including stream quality monitoring (see below).
 
Stream Water Quality Monitoring Volunteers Wanted!
FLOW volunteers annually monitor the stream water quality of selected Olentangy River tributaries. Volunteer teams measure physical, chemical and biological attributes, including the presence of various “macroinvertebrates “, (insects and other small animals that indicate the level of water pollution). Training sessions are held in May, with testing starting June 15 through September. Please contact FLOW if you’re interested in joining us!
