Join Richand County’s precipitation monitor team

MANSFIELD — The next training and orientation session for Richland Soil and Water Conservation District (Richland SWCD) Volunteer Precipitation Monitors will be held on Thursday, September 20 at 10:00 a.m. at the Richland SWCD office located in the Richland County Longview Center at 1495 W. Longview Avenue, Suite 205B, Mansfield.

This is a great volunteer opportunity if you enjoy keeping track of when it rains or snows. As a Precipitation Monitor you will measure and record rain and snowfall at your home or business. Data is used to gauge long-term trends in watershed health and land use practices. We’ll train you and provide the equipment; all you need is access to the internet. Your data is shared with the public on the Richland SWCD Water Data Map at This is a great citizen-science opportunity that doesn’t require a lot of time and provides valuable data.
