Year-Round Volunteer Opportunities
Become a Volunteer with the Alpine Watershed Group or Friends of Hope Valley today!
Meadow Stewards Program
The Alpine Watershed Group, with support from American Rivers, is managing a multi-year study to develop a hydrologic model for the head waters of the West Fork of the Carson River, chiefly Hope Valley. Project volunteers collect stream discharge data at four study sites to quantify seasonal variation. That data is correlated with stage dataloggers to develop water quantity models.
Ambient Monitoring Water Quality Program
The Alpine Watershed Group organizes dedicated volunteers to collect five basic water quality parameters at eight sites within the East and West Forks of the Carson River. These five water quality parameters are the basic conditions needed to sustain aquatic life. Impairments to these parameters will greatly impact aquatic plants, macroinvertebrates, and fish.
