Date & Time
Location Venue: Rhodes Jordan Park - Community Center

Address: 100 East Crogan St Lawrenceville, GA 30046


Georgia Adopt-a-Stream enables citizens to collect baseline water quality data to both observe the conditions of our local streams and become more aware of pollution and water quality issues. Unfortunately, many streams in Gwinnett do not currently meet established state water quality standards. That’s why we need your help!

You and your family/co-workers/group could serve as official “keepers” of a portion of a creek or stream by periodically monitoring its condition with supplies, training, and certifications in chemical, bacterial and macroinvertebrate testing provided by Gwinnett Clean & Beautiful and the Department of Water Resources. To find out more about the Adopt-a-Stream program, visit

In this free training workshop, we will focus on identifying Macroinvertebrates as indicators for water and habitat quality. With this 5 hour workshop, you will learn how to identify these interesting bugs, have a lunch break, and can earn an official Georgia Adopt-a-Stream Certification in Macroinvertebrate Monitoring! If you are interested in attending, please register at below.
