Training
Each year, biologists conduct an annual visit to each lake/pond participating in VLAP. During that visit, volunteers are trained on the proper monitoring protocols and sampling techniques to collect quality data. A sampling procedures assessment is performed and volunteers are notified of areas needing improvement and re-trained in those areas if necessary. VLAP also offers an annual workshop to volunteers. Volunteers are able to attend a sampling refresher session at the workshop to refresh sampling skills and ask pertinent questions. Contoocook Lake volunteer Ted Covert receives the coveted Secchi Disk Award during the 2007 Annual VLAP Training Workshop
