PA Trout Unlimited Offers Coldwater Conservation Corps Training To Monitor Drilling
PA Trout Unlimited and ALLARM (Alliance for Aquatic Resource Monitoring) are offering a series of training opportunities for volunteers under the Coldwater Conservation Corps.
These trainings sessions will cover topics ranging from basic environmental concerns of gas extraction in the Marcellus Shale to hands-on water quality sampling.
