We will be kicking off our first of three field tours this year with a trip to the Schooner Creek and Salmon River watersheds. The theme of this tour is watershed processes and we will be looking at how water moves through the landscape and how it is used on its path from source to sea. The tour will be on Thursday, July 27 from 1-5pm – transportation will be provided from the first stop as well as snacks and drinks.
Please RSVP at bit.ly/mwpprsvp so that we can plan accordingly!
