Water quality monitoring with Citizen Scientists

Since 2014, the Clear Creek Task Force has been monitoring the health of the stream water, the bugs that live in it and the vegetation that surrounds Clear Creek. We also take elevation readings to monitor the changes to the shape of the stream bed  around the estuary.


The four sites have a distinctive story to tell about the health of Clear Creek from before the 240-foot span bridge was built and the positive changes since the bridge opened (2015) the estuary to full tidal function.

Citizen Scientists of all ages are welcome to join us at the Clear Creek Interpretive Center to “suit up” prior to the field work.  Waders are made available with prior arrangements. Citizen Scientists are welcome to come when they can and leave when they must.
