River Watch Monitors
River Watch is a statewide volunteer monitoring program that generates water quality data on rivers around the state and utilizes this high value data to educate individuals and inform decision makers about the condition of Colorado’s waters. Those who can participate include individual volunteers, teachers, school groups, and conservation organizations. Real People, Real Science, Real Purpose.

The data River Watch volunteers collect directly impacts decisions to help maintain and restore rivers in the State of Colorado. Your time and data collection are critical and greatly appreciated.
River Watch is a program that provides equipment to schools and adult groups to monitor rivers in their community. This data is used in water management decisions. The program manages lots of equipment and data and needs assistance at CPW Denver Headquarters.
We are looking for a one year commitment that equates to 3-4 hours per month to help process samples and manage inventory, equipment, and data. Work at CPW Denver Headquarters must be done on weekdays but can be flexible each month as long as consistent. No experience necessary, and all training will be provided.
Additionally, we manage data from macroinvertebrate analysis to chemical data and routinely update reports summarizing the data by watershed. We are looking for volunteers able to work remotely 5-10 hours per month on data analysis, report writing and website updates (wordpress). Basic microsoft excel experience preferred, all other training will be provided.
Please sign up, and then email Megan McConville to take the next step to volunteer. Thank you.
