Hennepin County is seeking volunteers to monitor wetlands as part of its Wetland Health Evaluation Program (WHEP).

Volunteers are expected to commit 15 hours per month from June to September.
Residents of the following cities and neighboring communities are encouraged to apply for area teams:
Partnering cities use WHEP data to determine the health of water resources and manage natural resources.
The deadline to submit volunteer applications is June 1. For more information or to become a volunteer, call Mary Karius at 612-596-9129 or visit the WHEP webpage.
