The Cooperative has been working with partners in the United Kingdom, providing advice on setting up a regional monitoring initiative. To help out, the CMC presented on volunteer engagement and the benefits of volunteer monitoring programs at their Catchment Data and Evidence Forum. The organization is working to set up a similar program to the CMC, which they are calling the Catchment Monitoring Cooperative. This presentation was part of the afternoon lightning talks discussing monitoring and citizen science efforts. After the presentations, there was a live Q&A session with the 80 participants attending the conference.
