2017 Watershed Survey Training Workshop
How to Identify, Monitor and Mitigate Ways in Which Watershed Land Use Influences Lake Water Quality
Friday, July 21st 10AM – 2:30PM
at the VLMP Center for Citizen Lake Science
Virtually all of the natural characteristics of a lake are influenced by the land area, or watershed, that drains to the lake. But human activities that alter the natural protective features of lake watersheds can result in significant degradation of water quality and aquatic habitat over time, unless conservation measures are undertaken to protect the lake. This workshop will cover basic information about the relationship between lakes and their watersheds, common threats to lake water quality from watershed development, and how to identify and resolve problems through the watershed survey process. We will begin with an inside discussion, followed by a field trip to a nearby lake watershed. Please bring a brown bag lunch.
Pre-registration is required. To register please contact the VLMP office at 207-783-7733 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
