Sampling season soon

“Soon!” is the operative word and as we reported last month, groups will be small but mighty in adherence with Covid guidelines. Please contact Caroline van Schaik if you are not already receiving her announcements about how to participate in Minnesota Driftless area stream team work.

In the meantime, a reminder that we hope we can offer a culminating half-day IN PERSON streamside training to become Save Our Stream(SOS) certified but it will be open ONLY to those who have completed online ‘classes’ offered by the National SOS folks.

Here’s the details!

The online sections are a Covid response to what typically are in person workshops. They are terrific! And for now, because we don’t know when we can return to full in person training, they are what’s on offer – take a look!
