Dakota County is looking for people who are anxious to pull on a pair of waders and jump into monitoring the health of community wetlands through the Wetland Health Evaluation Program.

Volunteers will work with a community-based team to monitor and collect information -- such as data on plants and macroinvertebrates -- that is used by cities to study health trends in order to better manage wetlands and surrounding areas. Previous monitoring experience is not necessary to take part.

Volunteers typically commit 10 to 30 hours of their time, which includes training, field work and lab analysis.
