The Willow Creek Water Quality Monitoring Program began in the early 2000s when Stewards became active in assisting State Parks with restoring fish passage in the Willow Creek watershed. Volunteers were trained and began monitoring three locations in the watershed at regular intervals. Parameters include pH, dissolved oxygen, conductivity and other tests that determine optimum habitat for salmonids.
New volunteers are required to attend one of the three General Orientation Sessions offered during the year. However, stewardship volunteers can sign-up for activities any time of the year and do not have to wait to attend an orientation before beginning to volunteer.
