The Carlton SWCD is looking for volunteers to join our Rain Gauge Monitoring Network.  The network is part of a state-wide effort of the State Climatology Office of the MN DNR.  Volunteering is simple and makes a big difference.  The rain gauge and form are provided, and volunteers can send in their data by mail, drop it off at the SWCD office, or simply email it directly to the climatology office.  The service of volunteers in this network aids in developing the statewide precipitation archive.  The data collected and recorded throughout the state can be viewed at the State Climatology Office website, http://climate.umn.edu/.

Interested in joining the Rain Gauge Network?  Click here to fill out the Volunteer Form, then mail it to the Carlton SWCD office.
