Measuring and Mapping


Time to Get in the Water!

WHAT: We want you to join a team that will measure and map a stream site this summer!  Learn to “read a river” by characterizing the bed, the banks and other indicators of stream health.  You must first attend a training on the field techniques in a hands-on workshop.  Then,  people will form into teams to map two sites on a later date selected by you and the team.   No prior knowledge is necessary.  You will not get wet at the training but you will walk IN the stream and possibly over uneven terrain when you map your site. Older Children (9+) are welcome to attend but each one must be attended by one adult.

WHERE: Training: NEW Center, 1100 N. Main Street, Ann Arbor, MI, 48104.  Activity: A two streams in Livingston, Oakland, Wayne or Washtenaw Counties

WHEN: July 26, 2015 (12:00 to 4:00pm) for training, and then two field outings, each are 4 hours sometime in August.

DEADLINE: Register by July 23, 2015.  Register:
