The Yoho Lake Water Monitoring Committee is looking for volunteers! Please see the following message from Dinah Stocker:
A group of volunteers monitor the quality of Yoho Lake water each summer in conjunction with several other lakes, YLA and the New Brunswick Lakes Association. We take measurements such as water clarity, pH levels, temperature, etc., at 4 specific coordinates on the lake. This way we can tell how well the lake can support fish, plants, birds, “our loons,” and so on. A “team” of monitors go out every second week and anticipate starting this year in mid-June.
We are looking for 4 volunteers, two people with boats and two additional people as monitors. We will have an experienced monitor “team up” with new volunteers. No experience is necessary just interest. The time commitment is a spring training/meeting; 2 “measurement sessions” (one July, one August) that take about 1-1.5 hours each and a final fall debriefing meeting.
