Volunteers are needed for a pilot beaver survey project as a part of Johnson Creek Watershed Council's growing Community Science program. No prior experience is required.
Help document the distribution of beaver activity through Johnson Creek. Metro Ecologist Kate Holleran will teach volunteers about the role of beavers in watershed restoration. Volunteers will also receive training in a cutting-edge beaver survey protocol.
Volunteer orientation will be held on July 28th from 6pm-8pm.
Surveys will be held on three days in August and September.

The Johnson Creek Watershed Council is a partner of Environmental Services on outreach and restoration efforts in Johnson Creek, including the new wetland project underway at Lower Errol Heights. Beavers are also an important partner in our clean water and flood mitigation efforts (read more here).
