Please Note: We will be sampling at different sites on Stevens Creek which are several miles apart.While we encourage carpooling, you are responsible for your own transportation, whether in your own car or that of another volunteer.

Help us monitor the health of Stevens Creek! Volunteers should expect to learn about the main sources of pollution to our urban creeks, learn to use scientific equipment to analyze basic water quality parameters, and walk in a variety of landscapes.This event is rain or shine, unless otherwise notified.

Waivers/Registration: All participants must register & approve the online waiver through this Eventbrite page. Youth under 18 must have their legal guardian approve the waiver on their behalf. Volunteers under the age of 13 must be accompanied by an adult.

Parking:Parking is available at McClellan Ranch Preserve.

Meeting Space: We will meet in the parking and leave for the first sampling site around 9:15 am.

Prepare for Working Outdoors:

  • Water bottle

  • Long pants, long sleeves recommended

  • Sturdy close-toed shoes that can get dirty

  • Hat/sunscreen or rain gear/boots

  • Plan for potential exposure to sun

No experience is necessary! Please arrive on time as we drive to the different sampling locations.


Grassroots Ecology encourages people from all identities and backgrounds to participate in our programs. Many of our programs are outdoors and involve moving and working in a variety of landscapes. If you have accessibility concerns (i.e., allergies, limited mobility, learning differences), our projects are flexible and we are happy to work with you. Please reach out to the workday facilitator so we can best prepare for your participation.
