This training will cover everything you need to know from collecting temperature data and monitoring invasive species to identifying harmful algal blooms and submitting data using the Lake Blitz Observation Form.
This 1.5 hour session will be hosted by Living Lakes Canada’s National Lake Blitz Program Manager, Camille LeBlanc. Camille will walk volunteers through a typical sampling day and show how to use the Lake Blitz Kit and Field Guide to accurately collect your data and observations. Volunteers will also practice using the Survey 123 app to enter their data into the Lake Blitz Observation Form, and learn how to navigate the Lake Blitz Observation Map to see all of the data coming in from across Canada.
Invasive species and algae bloom identification tips will also be covered in this years training. Camille will discuss common aquatic invasives,how to discover your regional invasive species organization and safety protocols if and when you spot a harmful algae bloom.
Volunteers will walk away with a better understanding of their roles and responsibilities and how to access additional information and support from the Lake Blitz team and our partner organizations.
