For many years volunteers collected water samples from tributaries of the Arkansas River.  These included from below a mine on Chalk Creek and above the new Buena Vista State Wildlife Access site on Cottonwood Creek.  This was done in snow, sleet, rain and heat, year-round by dedicated volunteers.

 Data was periodically sent to the Division of Wildlife for insect analysis.

Currently school groups are now doing River Watch sampling.
