Patrick Hurley along with help from a junior class from Sentinel High School and the Watershed Education Network set afloat three Biohaven Floating Islands into the Pattee Creek retention pond Thursday. Floating island wetlands are becoming an increasingly revolutionary tool to combat water pollution without the use of harmful chemicals.

The Watershed Education Network is holding volunteer stream monitoring trainings Saturday, Sept. 8, from noon to 4 p.m. and Thursday, Sept., 13 from 3:30 to 7:30 p.m.

The trainings meet at The Watershed Education Network office, 802 E. Front St., and following orientation migrates to the site where most of the training will be held. The trainings are open to the public and free of charge. All trainings feature the same water monitoring protocols (biological, chemical and physical parameters).

Come prepared for all weather, bring a water bottle and warm socks.
