KCCA is looking for volunteers living or working in the watershed to collect and share precipitation data with KCCA!
Do you have an interest in weather? Would you like to help your local community? KCCA is currently recruiting volunteer observers to join the Community Collaborative Rain, Hail and Snow Network (CoCoRaHS).
CoCoRaHS Canada is a unique, non-profit, community-based network of volunteers working together to measure and map precipitation, hail and snow across Canada. There are over 100 stations in Ontario. Volunteer citizen scientists who sign up for this project will receive a specialized rain gauge, instruction on where and how to install the gauge and instruction on how to use the data entry software (either through the website or an app for your smartphone). The rain gauges are “manual” meaning they don’t require power to collect data. Once set up, monitoring your CoCoRaHS station will only take 5 minutes of your time every day to empty and log your results.
Contact Jennifer Dow for more information, or to sign up to become a volunteer observer.
