Some streams in the Chicagoland area benefit from citizen and volunteer groups who monitor the biological quality of the creek.  The Aux Sable Creek Watershed does not currently have such a program.  A local 4H group annual participates in Illinois Department of Natural Resources EcoWatch/RiverWatch program.  Monitoring is also completed by the Kendall County Forest Preserve District at Baker Woods, as well as by the IEPA/DNR programs.  During the plan update in 2007-2009, a coordinated and guided monitoring network was recommended.  If you are interested in partnering to start a watershed-wide monitoring program please visit the monitoring section of this website and contact us.
