Stream Assessment Training – Free
September 24 at 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Morristown & Morris Township Library
With all that’s going on with our planet, now is the right time to tune in to our environment a little more. Join us for this free training workshop and learn how to monitor a stream, or simply gain a better understanding about stream health. The first half of the program will be held indoors at Morristown/ Morris Township Library. Then we will drive over to Loantaka Park to complete the course streamside along Loantaka Brook. You will need to your own transportation from the Library to the park. By the afternoon, you will be fully trained and ready to conduct your own visual stream assessments! Registration is free but required so we can obtain a headcount.
Parking is available on the street or in one of the nearby parking garages.
