River and Wetland Monitoring

Fortin Consulting is highly versed in aquatic ecosystem health. We have many years of river and wetland monitoring experience, and proficiency in vegetation and invertebrate identification. Fortin Consulting is often retained to collect and/or identify macroinvertebrate and plant samples for other organizations.

Fortin Consulting also provides excellent assistance in a variety of volunteer monitoring programs including Hennepin County’s River Watch program, Dakota County’s Wetland Health Evaluation Program (WHEP), and Rice Creek Watershed’s Stream Health Evaluation Program (SHEP). Our role in these programs include volunteer training, collection and identification assistance, data review and analysis, report writing, and more.
