about south river federation

Are you passionate about the environment? Do you want to uncover mysteries about the streams in the South River watershed?

Be part of a rapid mobilization stream team!

As part of our Church Creek research project, we need to take water quality measurements simultaneously at several Annapolis streams during a rain event. This will better help us understand where the highest concentrations of pollution are occurring.

Come on May 31st at 10am (Location TBD) to attend the training and orientation. We need about 20 people with flexible schedules during weekdays to hike in teams through urban forested areas to grab water samples.  Each attempt only needs 10 people and will only take an hour or two, but it is likely we will have to do this multiple times. We will send out an email alert a couple days before  each attempt based on the weather forecast. We are hoping to wrap up this stream snapshot by the end of June.

This "snapshot" of Church Creek's streams will be incredibly helpful to our research! Results from this exercise will ultimately help to inform us on how to direct our focus to better reduce and treat polluted runoff.

If you are interested in volunteering for this science expedition, have a flexible schedule, and are unfazed by hiking in the rain, please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for more information!
