I just got home from a 3 day return trip to the Upper American River Watershed near Union Valley Reservoir. I joined about 70 other people in an ongoing effort to learn more about this beautiful area. We added to the wealth of information that already exists on the natural resources of this area. We taught and learned from over 50 high school students from El Dorado and Placer Counties. The project is called the Watershed Education Summit, (or WES). Here are a few of the photos that I captured.
