June Vegetation and Fall Advanced Bugs Sign Up- 2023
This form will allow you to sign up for summer and fall 2023 Vegetation Monitoring as well as some advanced Level 2 Macroinvertebrate Collections with Watershed Education Network (WEN).

Vegetation sampling will be occurring across two weeks in June for full days (stopping for lunch in the field) with half day options available and encouraged. We want to be mindful of your time, and encourage you to contact us if you need to arrive late or leave early if that would work better for you! We will be surveying ground cover, shrubcover, and tree cover. It is likely that days will end early. No experience necessary, but some plant ID skills are helpful! We will also be collecting some plants to build an set of preserved samples for WEN!

Macroinvertebrate collections will be during our fall field season at one site above the former rattlesnake dam one site below the dam, and three sites at the dam. No prior experience needed!

Each morning we meet at our office (802 E Front St - white house west of the Press Box, across the street from Big Sky Bikes) to check in, gather gear and carpool/caravan up to the monitoring sites; waders are provided if needed and you do not have your own.

If you are unsure about your availability, please check the box regardless, we will check in with you before each outing. You can also revisit this form later to resubmit or email us if your availability changes.

WEN staff and volunteers are staying mindful of the changing circumstances of the COVID-19 pandemic.You are asked to remain home if you are not feeling well and/or if you have had a recent close contact with someone with COVID.

Please contact Stephie and Brook if you have any questions, comments or issues with this form - stephie@montanawatershed.org brook@montanawatershed.org
