Friends of the Rouge, an environmental non-profit based in Plymouth, has a unique and fun volunteer opportunity with the Rouge Education Project.
The Rouge Education Project is a ~4th-12th grade water quality monitoring program that works with schools throughout SE Michigan to conduct hands-on scientific fieldwork through physical, biological, and chemical assessments of Rouge River health.
Every year we look for volunteers to help participating classrooms during a field trip to the Rouge River, which occurs on/around May 1 this year. Interested individuals will be trained in each of the monitoring techniques: a physical assessment of the river, collecting and identifying benthic macroinvertebrates (aquatic organisms) in the river, and nine parameters of chemical testing. We pair them with an elementary, middle, or high school and they work with them in the classroom before and/or side-by-side with them at the river on testing day. No prior experience is necessary, but some experience working with kids is helpful.
More information about the project and other volunteer opportunities with Friends of the Rouge can be found on our website: www.therouge.org.
