Waterwatch is a free river health education and monitoring program which aims to increase community understanding, participation and ownership of local river health issues. It involves schools and the community in the assessment and monitoring of water quality in our streams and wetlands. Our Waterwatch team provides talks on freshwater ecology to schools and groups, provides free training and events and co-ordinates the volunteer monitoring program.
