Bad River Watershed Monitoring Program
The overall objective of the BRWA Water Quality Monitoring Program is to establish at least a four-year baseline of water quality on the streams and rivers within our service area. The baseline data will be used to determine the overall health of watersheds and troubled spots will be investigated.
Great Lakes Worm Watch
Great Lakes Worm Watch is committed to increasing public understanding and appreciation of the role of exotic earthworms in ecosystems change across the region.
Integrated Monarch Butterfly Monitoring Strategy
A national initiative to monitor monarch populations and habitat throughout the breeding range. The IMS uses a spatially balanced sampling scheme and draws from existing citizen science programs to deliver a suite of protocols that capture many aspects of habitat quality, threats, and monarch use of that habitat. Data gathered through the IMS contribute to existing population and habitat models that inform broad scale monarch conservation!
Minnesota Bee Atlas
Volunteers participants create a list of native bees found in MN. Participants can submit anecdotal observations, observe bees on an assigned route, or submit observations of a nesting block.
Minnesota Forest Pest First Detector Program
Volunteers are trained to help identify the occurrence of Emerald Ash Borer and other forest pests in MN.
Minnesota Odonata Survey Project
Volunteers survey the state for dragonflies and damselflies and share their knowledge with others.
Mussel Monitoring Program of Wisconsin
Over half of Wisconsin’s 51 native mussel species (also known as clams) are listed as species of greatest conservation need or we need information on where they currently occur. Threats like habitat alteration (dams, siltation) and the presence of invasive mussels (zebra mussels) pose major threats to the existence of our native mussels. The Mussel Monitoring Program of Wisconsin would like your help in finding out what mussels occur in your area!

Water Action Volunteers Stream Monitoring Program
Water Action Volunteers (WAV) is a statewide program for Wisconsin citizens who want to learn about and improve the quality of Wisconsin’s streams and rivers.
Wisconsin Odonata Survey
The focus of the WI Odonata Survey is to document populations of dragonflies and damselflies to increase knowledge of distribution and required habitats.
