Event Title

The King County lake stewardship program: a volunteer monitoring effort striving to grow with the residents of King County

Presentation Abstract

The King County Lake Stewardship Program was established nearly 25 years ago in response to resident concerns about water quality and lake management. The volunteer-based effort has since expanded to include the annual participation of over 75 volunteers helping to monitor more than 35 lakes across the County. As technologies and residents’ needs evolve, management of the program aims to do so as well. This presentation will include details about volunteer management and interaction, data collection and reporting, lessons learned as the program has evolved, and goals for future program implementation, expansion, and data utilization.
