Fall 2016 Stream Stewards Gathering

It’s time for a Stream Steward gathering again.

Gather with your fellow Stream Stewards and share your recent experiences out in the field. We will also discuss what some of your needs and goals are while participating in the Stream Steward program. We are looking to offer some advanced topic training this winter, and potentially a fish hatchery tour. Meet some of the new Stream Stewards or reconnect with the ones you haven’t seen in a while.

We will meet in the community space behind the Starbucks inside the QFC grocery store and KCD will supply some light appetizers from the QFC deli.

Also, come get trained on how to use the new ProODO unit, to simplify taking some field data measurements. This training will happen at the end, so if you don’t want to tie up your whole day, feel free to attend for the final hour of the day which will be specifically on the ProODO sampler.
