MountainTrue University – Swim Guide

June 17, 2020 @ 11:30 am - 12:00 pm

Hannah Woodburn, our AmeriCorps High Country Water Quality Administrator, will dive into SwimGuide. MountainTrue samples many rivers and popular swimming areas in our region to check for E.Coli levels, and we publish that data through the SwimGuide app. Hannah will explain the sampling process, what makes a stream safe to swim, and how to volunteer to help.

MountainTrue University is a weekly speaker series where we connect with our community to share our knowledge on a variety of environmental topics. When you register, you’ll receive the link to join the Zoom webinar. The recordings will be available after on our Facebook page and website.
