Do you like observing weather from your own backyard? If so, we need you for the Community Collaborative Rain, Hail and Snow Network…known as CoCoRaHS. We currently have only 2 active CoCoRaHS observers in Grundy county (including myself) and would very much like to increase the coverage throughout the county as well as surrounding counties.
You are required to purchase an official 4 inch diameter CoCoRaHS rain gauge ( $22 plus S&H) for accuracy and consistency. Data is entered via a web site and you can see your report and all the other CoCoRaHS daily reports in the county, state, and country. To learn more about this great volunteer program, go to the CoCoRaHS web page. Download the flyer on this training session here.
A CoCoRaHS training session will be held in Grundy County on:
Wednesday, October 1, 2008 at 6:30 p.m. in Morris, IL
Location: Grundy County Soil & Water Conservation District Office
3605 N. Illinois Route 47, Suite B
To register, call the SWCD office at 815-942-0359, ext 3. Registration deadline is Friday, Sept 26.
