Volunteer Opportunities Available at MVCA

May 25, 2018 Carleton Place, ON— Two creeks in the City of Ottawa are the focus of this year’s City Stream Watch program, and Mississippi Valley Conservation Authority (MVCA) is calling for volunteers to help obtain, record and manage valuable information on the physical and biological characteristics of Poole and Cody Creeks.

“The goal of City Stream Watch is to ensure creeks and streams in the City of Ottawa are respected and valued natural features of the communities through which they flow,” said MVCA Biologist Kelly Stiles. “This year’s program will run from June 11 to August 10. It offers excellent hands on experience and volunteers will receive all of the necessary training.”

Volunteers will work closely with experienced staff members, wading up the stream taking detailed measurements and site characteristics every 100 metres. Each group will be made up of 2-3 volunteers and 1-2 staff members. Scheduling is based on volunteer availability.

Anyone looking to volunteer is encouraged to send an email to monitoring@mvc.on.ca with the following information:

• Date(s) of availability
• Shoe size (for hip waders)
• Phone number

MVCA is part of the City Stream Watch Collaborative formed in 2014 that consists of dedicated environmental organizations, including Rideau Valley and South Nation Conservation Authorities and other interested groups.

If you’d rather stay on dry land, consider tree planting. Planting will take place along the newly restored Carp River south of Richardson Side Road on Monday, June 4 beginning at 10:00am. Volunteers should wear sturdy shoes and bring water. Work gloves and shovels are provided. If you’d like to bring your own please make sure they are well marked.

For more information or to RSVP please contact Kelly Stiles at kstiles@mvc.on.ca or 613-253-0006 ext. 234.

MVCA is one of 36 Conservation Authorities in Ontario. Formed in 1968, MVCA’s mandate is to manage the watershed’s resources in partnership with our eleven member municipalities and the Province of Ontario. For more information, visit www.mvc.on.ca, follow us on Twitter and like us on Facebook.
