Macroinvertebrate Bioassessment

To Be Announced


The Upper Putah Creek Stewardship has been monitoring steams of our watershed for over four years The testing method used is called "bioassessment". During this process, benthic marcroinvertabrates - aka "bugs" are collected. The presence, condition and numbers of the types of bugs are data that can provide direct, accurate information about the health of our streams. Join us in the creek for a day or become a citizen monitor and become part of our assessment team!

Watershed Assessment

Frebruary 2009

May 2009


The Upper Putah Creek Stewardship is in the process of developing a formal watershed assessment. “Watershed assessment” is one method used to understand a watershed. It is a process for evaluating how well a watershed is functioning. Watershed assessments may include identifying important issues, examining historic conditions, evaluating present conditions and processes, and determining the effects of human activities. A complete watershed assessment will inform decisions being made in the watershed. (For more watershed assessment information visit # ) The Upper Putah Creek Stewardship will be hosting three assessment planning meetings over the next 18 months. We welcome your participation!
