CitiSci is a super cool application supported by Natural Resource Ecology Lab (NREL) at Colorado State University, CitSci now hosts 1146 projects that have contributed more than 1606605 data points to answer local, regional, and global scientific questions.

We would love have our local fishing community contribute to data collection in Oregon.

Collect water temps wherever you fish!

Hot Homewaters Taskforce aims to monitor stream temperatures across Oregon

Goals:

1. Determine how hot streams get during summer.

2. Provide temperature data for streams that aren’t currently monitored for temperature.

3. Provide data to analyze land management.

Tasks:
Collecting temperature from streams, as close to the main flow possible while staying safe.

Get Started:
Grab a stream thermometer and visit your favorite stream! Taking regular temperature measurements in the same location at different times of the day throughout the year will provide the most useful data.
