FoRR is Seeking to Activate Citizen Scientists from Travelers Rest to Greenwood

FoRR has been actively monitoring water quality and ecological habitat throughout the Reedy River watershed for two years. More assistance is needed to collect citizen science data from Travelers Rest all the way to Lake Greenwood, where the Reedy meets the Saluda River. Olivia Dunn, Watershed Scientist, has created an interactive map of available monitoring locations along the Reedy River to guide new volunteers in finding safe sites where data is needed for the organization’s education, advocacy, and river work.
