Reproduction of Lessons Learned in Building Streams Volunteer Monitoring Networks

Joint project with the Institute of Limnology of the Russian Academy of Sciences (St. Petersburg) and the NGO “Nature School” “Ostrov” (St. Petersburg).

Within the framework of the project, the creation of a public stream monitoring network in the Leningrad, Vologda and Pskov regions was investigated. The purpose of the project was to promote the strengthening of cooperation between state nature protection structures, the public, and scientific and educational institutions, and to encourage the public, schoolchildren in particular, to preserve streams. One of the main tasks was to organise methodological workshops on public monitoring of water bodies. In addition, a conference and a number of consulting seminars were held within the framework of the project.

Supported by the ROLL Program of the Institute of Sustainable Communities and the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID).
