Are you passionate about preserving the environment and learning more about water quality? If yes, Texas Stream Team (TST) is the perfect opportunity for you to get hands on training about water quality testing and earn a “ Citizen Scientist” certificate free of cost. The hands-on training is completed in three phases:

  • Phase I – includes hands-on training demonstrated by the trainer.
  • Phase II – you conduct the monitoring procedures in the field with the help of the trainer.
  • Phase III – you conduct the monitoring activities independently in the field.


All three phases of trainings are usually completed on the same day in approximately four hours. After you complete the training, you can also volunteer to monitor the cottonwood creek that runs through the campus once a month. The monitoring activities can be completed in an hour each month.  Your time spent on Texas Stream Team training will also qualify for Sustainability Service Hours (SSH). If you volunteer to monitor the creek, Office of Sustainability will match 2X the hours towards SSH.
