RiverTrends Water Quality Monitoring With Community Scientists

Making a difference in our watershed means building relationships with the individuals who live, work, and play throughout its lands and waters. Uniting communities under one mission is one of our biggest strengths at the Alliance. Through a wide variety of programs, we connect people to their local rivers and streams, where they become directly involved in local restoration efforts. It’s an approach that builds resiliency among our communities and landscapes to continually adapt to an ever-changing world.

RiverTrends water quality monitoring volunteer, David Steinberger is part of our network of community scientists who collect and establish important baseline data throughout the watershed. The program offers David a unique opportunity to share his passion for science with the middle/upper school students he teaches at Fredericksburg Academy in Virginia.
