Seeking help for Map Our Marshes

Organizers from BC Wildlife Federation are still looking for participants to help out with a Map Our Marshes workshop on Saturday, Sept. 15

Organizers from BC Wildlife Federation are still looking for participants to help out with a Map Our Marshes workshop on Saturday, Sept. 15.

The event will be held at the Thompson Rivers University education and research center in Upper Clearwater from 9 a.m. – 1:30 p.m.

The main instrument used will be a handheld GPS unit (provided). For the field section, participants will learn how to create tracks and waypoints of the wetland complex surrounding the research center.

After the field session, participants will head into Clearwater, where they will learn how to upload geographical field data.

There is no charge to take part and the event is open to anyone interested in environmental conservation.

Participants should bring waders or gumboots if they own them (they are welcome to bring their own GPS units also).

 

More information is available on the BCWF website at www.bcwf.net. To register, email Owni Toma at otoma90@gmail.com.
