A creek walk is a great way to not only volunteer your time to help make sure our water ways are clear, clean and safe but also to enjoy nature and explore the smaller water channels within our community.
“Adopt” a stream in the Huron River Watershed! When you adopt a stream in the Huron River Watershed it is your job to create a team of volunteers comprised of your family and friends and throughout the summer months (June, July, and August), you and your team will participate in numerous activities that will help HRWC better understand the problems and highlights of the creeks in our watershed. If you can’t or do not want to form a team you can asked to be placed on a team
1. Attend the Creekwalking kick-off meeting.
2. June: Make an exploratory site visit to cataloging plants and animals, taking pictures, recording potential stream issues, and installing a thermometer.
3. July and August: The team will walk or paddle ½ to 1 mile upstream (in July) and downstream of the site (in August). The group will pick up trash, look for potential problems, take temperature and conductivity readings throughout, and use a GPS unit to record these problems. This data will help HRWC make management recommendations and potentially start new restoration projects.
WHEN: 2017. We are taking a break from creekwalking in the summer of 2016.
