Get your hands wet and contribute to great science! Adopt a Secchi disk and dip-in!

Adopt a Secchi disk NOW and dip-in to Flathead Lake to measure water clarity!

The Secchi Dip-in is a nationwide, annual program and this year YOU can participate!  We want our Flathead Lake community and their Secchi disks dipping all around Flathead Lake this summer!

HOW: Adopt a Secchi disk and learn how to use it.

WHEN: Training opportunities will be held in June and July.  Then, dip your Secchi disk in Flathead Lake on a sunny day during July 15-20. Then, report your site location and value.

WHY: To keep a watchful eye on Flathead Lake’s beautiful, clear water as a community and participate in great science locally and nationally!
