Stream Training

Each year in June or July, MiCorps holds a training workshop for Volunteer Stream Monitoring Program grant recipients. If space permits, the training may be opened up to other interested participants.

The 2017 workshop on stream monitoring methods for the Aquatic Macroinvertebrate Survey projects was held on June 29th in Jenison, Michigan. Topics covered included: aquatic macroinvertebrate sampling and identification, stream habitat analysis, field procedures, and volunteer and event management. Please contact Paul Steen ( for more information.
