Watershed ambassador Will York educated and enlightened an audience of 11 people that attended the Life in the Water program on July 19 at Owens Station Crossing. Will discussed the Wallkill River Watershed and the method of studying the macroinvertebrates that inhabit the water as a means of assessing the water quality. After an introduction to the various animals to be found, all examined water samples collected and put the instructions to use to find and identify the various species. Participants in the program receive a certificate for completing the Water Assessment Training.
