You are invited to join the WRP in September…
Working Woodlands Workshop, September 12
How is it that streams and forests compliment each other? What is happening to the streams in our watersheds? Should we be changing the way we treat our land to protect our streams and surrounding habitats? Join Vermont Agency of Natural Resources watershed basin planner Marie Caduto and forester Jon Bouton as they explore stream and streamside environments, natural processes, and human impacts on these habitats. We’ll see how streams change and evolve with time, discuss managing our activities near streams to protect stream dynamics, and learn how volunteers can help assess stream health. Meet at the Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historic Park Carriage Barn Visitor Center in Woodstock at 3:00. Free and open to the public. To register, call 802-457-3368×22.
Tunbridge Fair, September 13 – 16
Visit the WRP booth at the Fair (across from the gazebo) to see didymo up close; to get 2007 water quality monitoring results; and to learn more about what the WRP is doing in the watershed.
