Written by Elizabeth Davis. Posted in News & Weather

The Coosa River Basin Initiative is teaming with the Rome/Floyd ECO River Education Center and the Darlington School Outdoor Club to host a Georgia Adopt-A-Stream workshop on Saturday, March 3rd.  Participants will learn how to conduct chemical water monitoring on local streams and submit their data to Georgia’s Adopt-A-Stream database which helps track stream health across the state, according to a CRBI media release.  The three-hour workshop will be taught by River Education Center Director Eric Lindberg and hosted by Darlington School.  It is set to begin at 9 am at Ridge Ferry Park.  Participants will learn how to test water for temperature, pH and dissolved oxygen through hands-onn activities at nearby creeks.  These chemical indicators paint a general picture of stream health and can help identify some pollution problems.
