Volunteer lake monitors are an invaluable asset to the Lake Stewardship Program- their efforts result in vast amounts of data for King County Lakes that otherwise wouldn’t be collected.  We are always looking for new volunteers to serve as monitors and back-up monitors.  If you are interested, please contact us!  Contact information can be found at the bottom of the page.  

We are currently looking for volunteers to monitor the following lakes:

Volunteer training workshop

Please join us on Saturday, April 29th for the 2017 Volunteer Training Workshop, held at the Beaver Lake Lodge in Sammamish (25201 SE 24th St, Sammamish, WA 98075 )! We’ll review last year’s program, go over some sampling tips, and learn about aquatic plants and harmful algal blooms. We’ll also be distributing equipment for the season. This is a great opportunity to enjoy some tasty snacks and get to know other lake enthusiast throughout King County. Even if you aren’t yet a part of the program, we encourage you to attend!

Below are examples of presentations that were given at the 2016 workshop:

Lake Stewardship Volunteer Guide
