Stream Assessment Training will be held Saturday, October 3. Meet at 10 AM at Capp's Crossing Bridge near the campground. We can accept a maximum of 12 volunteers, including project leader, or about 2 - 3 people per stream. Youths (Boy Scouts) may be involved, if paired with an adult volunteer.
USFS will supply survey forms and PVC measuring rods, and will train the project leader and volunteers on 1 or 2 streams. The project team will assess the other streams later in October. All forms will be returned to USFS for assessment, with TU's recommendations as to which streams to improve. Installation of LWD will be in summer 2010. Funds may be provided through an EAS grant. USFS Maintenance crews may be used, or the work could be contracted out.
Volunteers will need the following equipment:
- Long Pants
- Hiking boots that you don't mind getting wet.
- Clipboard or tablet
- Lunch and plenty of water
- Change of clothes
