We can help design and implement monitoring plans tailored to your needs. As an example of our potential scope, here is a list of parameters we have monitored since 1999 under a Quality Assurance Project Plan approved by the WA Department of Ecology.
Our volunteers are familiar with detail-oriented data gathering and should be able to learn virtually any protocol given adequate training and supervision.
We manage all of our own data, including QA/QC, data entry and checking, and data reporting, using a custom-designed relational database. We can customize this database to accommodate new types of data and reports.
We have created and conducted educational displays, presentations, and activities, for a variety of audiences.
Our volunteers have helped with stream cleanups, weed pulls, tree plantings, plant surveys, and beach seines. Cold, wet, and muddy won't stop them!
Our volunteers' time may qualify as an "in-kind match" for certain grant projects.
We have supplied data to a host of clients ranging from governments to private consultants, in support of watershed planning and restoration, environmental impact assessments, and regulatory development and enforcement.
Clients who have paid for Streamkeepers' services include:
For smaller jobs, a simple verbal agreement might suffice. For larger jobs, a more formal contract (Memorandum of Agreement) will probably be necessary. The process of contracting with Streamkeepers will generally involve a number of steps:
This process is likely to require several weeks.
Billing terms might involve any of the following approaches:
Due to our use of volunteers to perform many aspects of our operation and the efficiencies afforded by our focus on stream-monitoring activities, we are able to offer terms that would be quite favorable when compared with typical market rates. We also consider projects from worthy clients who are unable to pay.
