Fishback Creek

Fishback Creek at Starling Nature Sanctuary

We had the pleasure of resurveying a portion of Fishback Creek this week. A cross-section was surveyed and the bedload sediment was sampled as part of a field exercise in fluvial sediment transport being conducted by Dr Kathy Licht’s G334 SedStrat class. This is the 3rd time this reach of Fishback Creek has been assessed in the last 10 years.

Edge of Field Monitoring in the School Branch Watershed

Last December we announced that we were building on over ten years of research in the Eagle Creek watershed by developing a long-term partnership to monitor water quality and quantity in School Branch, a small (8.4 mi2) subwatershed of the Eagle Creek Watershed. Last Friday we launched the project with a field tour of the project watershed.
