Watershed Survey Volunteers

September 2016

 Watershed Survey of Wilson Lake was conducted on Saturday, September 24, 2016.        A total of 43 volunteers involved (including 7 from Spruce Mtn High School, 16 from UMF, technical directors, and FOWL members). Under the direction of our Project Director Jen Jespersen, they fanned out in groups of four led by a technical director over the watershed in Wilton, Jay, and Temple and returned with data that will inform the next step -- that of looking at issues that could affect the water quality of Wilson Lake, Varnum Pond and/or Pease Pond, and deciding on a plan of action, including grant writing. There will be a public presentation on the results later this fall.
