Stream Monitoring & Research Study Design Workshop

Join TRCA for this two-day technical training workshop on stream monitoring and research study design.

The Ontario Stream Assessment Protocol (OSAP) is a series of standardized methodologies that evaluate a number of attributes of wadeable streams including: benthos, fish, flows, physical habitat and geomorphology, temperatures, stressors and restoration opportunities.

A core component of OSAP is to maximize linkages across methods that provide both flexibility in terms of how much effort is applied to stream monitoring but also the ability to conduct integrated analysis.

The emphasis of the annual OSAP, OBBN and other courses is based on collection techniques, not how to summarize and use stream monitoring data. So, after over 20 years of data collection and certification courses, it is time to bring data collectors, managers and users together for a two day workshop to hear about how the data is being used to answer management and scientific questions, what tools are available to assist with this and how best to ensure questions can be answered with available resources.

Additional Course Information

The workshop will be hosted at the TRCA Head Office (101 Exchange Avenue) on March 21st-22nd, 2019. Cost for the workshop will be $300 plus HST and includes lunch. To ensure a place in the workshop, please register by March 15th but note that registration is limited.
