Hennepin County Seeking Citizens to Monitor Wetlands
Apr 09, 2018 07:35PM ● Published by Wendy Erlien
Adults and families interested can register for the Wetland Health Evaluation Program (WHEP).
"As part of this program, volunteers will work with other citizens on a team from their area to monitor bugs and plants in wetlands," according to a release from Hennepin County. "No experience is required, but an interest in wetlands, bugs and/or plants is encouraged. Hennepin County provides all of the training, equipment and leadership."
At least a 15 hour commitment per month from June to September 2018 is expected, but volunteers determine how often to participate. Data will be used to check out the health of water resources and "assist with natural resource management," according to Hennepin County.
