In 2004 the Feather River CRM established a citizen-monitoring group through a DWR Watershed Program grant. Citizen monitors are now active in three sub-watersheds within the Feather River watershed, Spanish Creek (East Branch North Fork Feather River), Indian Creek (East Branch North Fork Feather River), and Sulphur Creek (Middle Fork Feather River). The citizen monitors have been active in World Water Monitoring Day, as well as collecting water samples during storm events throughout the winter and spring runoff season. Monitors help with reading stream gages, measuring water temperature, turbidity, and electroconductivity, at 16 different sites. Volunteers include landowners, community members, and students. Please visit the Citizen Monitoring page for more information.
