Conservation Activities

Routine Water Quality Sampling -We will be conducting in-stream water sampling in May -The water samples collected will be tested by an EPA certified lab. -The testing will determine the levels of over 50 metals, in-organics and physical properties(such as turbidity). -Many metals are naturally occurring in Virginia soils and natural water sources. -Based on the arrival of the water sampling kits, we are estimating that the sampling will occur Saturday, May 14 at 10 AM. -If interested in participating, contact Erika Wettergreen, the conservation chair at Save Our Streams: Virginia Save Our Streams is a program of the Izaak Walton League of America. Founded in 1922, the Izaak Walton League is one of the nation’s oldest and most respected conservation organizations. Virginians have the right to know whether our streams are safe for swimming, fishing, playing, and drinking. Virginia Save Our Streams monitors water quality of Virginia’s streams and educates the public about the importance of clean water. We are still looking for the macroinvertebrate equipment. An option for the macroinvertebrate equipment would be to make our own. The instructions are simple and easy to follow. One of the Committee members has a source for a few more pieces of PVC. Take a look and see if you can help out. The chapter seeks volunteers to help start a stream-monitoring program for five areas around the property. If interested contact Eric Brown on how you can help.
