    The Pilot School has successfully launched a sensor station! The acquisition of the water monitoring system was facilitated by a grant from the Stroud Water Research Center in conjunction with the EPA. On September 6, right before a rain, the data logger began recording the amount of water in the retention pond just beyond our parking lot.…[Read more]

    • That is AWESOME Trish! David and Shannon are headed to our school on Monday to install our sensor! We are so psyched!- @ Montgomery School, Chester Springs, PA

  • Shannon – thanks for the reply. I first heard of the EnviroDIY at the Society for Freshwater Science annual meeting this summer. They mentioned that there may be workshops to “train the trainer”, is this a possibility? Any chance you could come back out this way to do a little training? We are not as large as the Western Minnesota River Watch…[Read more]

In fact, we’ve been teaching workshops to school groups and citizen scientist programs for the past year and I was actually in Grand Forks, ND earlier this summer where we gave a 2-day workshop at UM-Crookston. With most of our school workshops, we taught middle-school and…[Read more]

  • I help run a River Watch program in North Dakota and we are interested in helping schools set up monitoring stations using the Mayfly system. How easy is it to do?

    Thanks, Stroud, for a wonderful three-day workshop!

  • Here is the possible future site for our Mayfly Data Logger and Monitoring Station. We look forward to collecting data to compare with data collected from our leaf packs in order to determine the effects of temperature, conductivity and depth on macroinvertebrate life.

  • Here is the pond at Green Woods. Deployment will be next to the dock and pump.

    Something I forgot to mention: the activity within an EnviroDIY group is separate from the “blog” area of website. Blog posts are like news articles that get featured on the homepage. They need to be approved by a site admin before they are published. To share with just your own group, make sure you start on your group homepage and write either a…[Read more]
