    Riverwatch Monitoring

    RiverWatch citizen scientists conduct habitat and biological surveys to collect consistent, high-quality data on the conditions of local streams and provide participants with a hands-on opportunity to be better stewards of our watersheds.

  • Illinois RiverWatch

    The Illinois RiverWatch Network is a volunteer monitoring initiative coordinated by the National Great Rivers Research and Education Center (NGRREC℠). RiverWatch is the only statewide biological monitoring program that provides volunteers a hands-on opportunity to become stewards of our local waterways by monitoring stream habitat and water quality. The program was originally established in 1995 and has since expanded to the statewide level, with over 200 participants monitoring streams annually.
