Time

1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Venue

Monaca Boat Launch

Organizer

Three Rivers Waterkeeper

Join Three Rivers Waterkeeper for an in-person training session while kayaking where they go over what pollution to look for and how to report pollution while you’re out by or on the water! For our training sessions, all equipment such as kayaks and life jackets will be provided. 

3 Rivers Watch is a network of volunteers who are active river users or river watchers, from individuals to groups, who have a vested interest in clean water. You can monitor the water while you are boating, kayaking, swimming, or even walking along the river. The 3 Rivers Watch training sessions include information about the types of pollution found in our waterways and how to report it along with an on-the-water experience in our watershed. The kayak version will last roughly an hour on single kayaks and is good for anyone with a base knowledge of kayaking. If you are passionate about creating drinkable, fishable, and swimmable waters, then you might be a great fit for our 3 Rivers Watch program.
