Utah Water Watch is recruiting volunteers to monitor lakes along the Wasatch Front. As explained below we have programs for beginner and experienced volunteers.

Please consider forwarding this email to list-serves and posting the attached poster anywhere potential volunteers may be found.

Advanced monitoring: We have partnered with NOAA on an algal monitoring program that pairs volunteer collected data on cyanobacteria in lakes with satellite data. These volunteers are a critical first-link in observing, reporting and verifying potentially harmful algal blooms.

Needed sites near SLC / Provo:

 *Rockport Reservoir   *Strawberry Reservoir   *Jordanelle Reservoir

*Salem Lake   *Utah Lake   *Big East Reservoir   *Deer Creek Reservoir



Standard Monitoring: Targeted at smaller lakes and community ponds, volunteers monitor a site 1/x a month for algal blooms, e. coli, temperature, fish catch, Secchi depth and pH

Click here for a map of sites -> Sites near SLC / Provo:<https://drive.google.com/open?id=1Glfn3hNSeFTSTAMVsj7x3VundL4&usp=sharing>

*         Millrace Park Pond   * Willow Pond   * Sandy Pond   * Kidney and Midas Ponds

*         Sunset Pond   * Oquirrh Lake   * Cove Pond   * Liberty Park Pond

*         Highland Glen Pond   * Riverton City Pond    * Spanish Oaks Reservoir

*         Vivian Park Pond   * Canyon View Park Pond   * Spring Lake

Backpack through one of Southern Utah's best kept secrets with unique geologic features and vistas overlooking the labyrinth of canyons in Canyonlands National Park and Cedar Mesa. We will visit rock art panels left hundreds of years ago by the Ancestral Puebloan people, hike 4-6 miles per day with backpacks, and retire each night to a cozy tent under a brilliant sky full of stars. Along the way, learn more about the forces that created these soaring mountains, the ancient seas that left the sandstone wonderland below, and the humans and animals that have called this area home. The highest point within the range is Abajo Peak at 11,360 feet (3,463 m) and this area provides the unique ability to traverse from high alpine tundra through several life zones all the way to Utah's stark red desert.
$750
