This event was the first of its kind in the Watershed and a whole lot of fun!
On October 4, 60 participants and volunteers helped us take a snapshot of the creek's health with stops at Acacia Reservation, Highland Picnic Area - Euclid Creek Reservation (ECR), and Wildwood Park - ECR to do monitoring.
It was a brisk morning as you can tell from everyone huddled together in the photos, so many thanks to all of you who volunteered or came and helped with the event. Partners from Cleveland Metroparks, NEORSD, Sierra Club Water Sentinels Program and FOEC Volunteer Monitors monitored sites throughout the watershed and provided demonstrations of chemical, macroinvertebrate and fish sampling.
A big group of students from the Mayfield High School National Honors Society participated, FOEC Volunteer Monitors, Tri-C East, Euclid High School, residents, and Watershed Volunteer Program participants came out for portions of, or all of the day.

Thanks to all of our partners and volunteers for making this a great day! And thank you to Patrick Henry for taking amazing photos (about half of the photos are taken by Patrick and half by Claire Posius).
