Wilmot Check Your Watershed Day

Wilmot Creek is part of the Ganaraska Conservation Authorities area. I am volunteering as part of their Wilmot Check Your Watershed Day event which is a neat multi-partnered initiative to use local volunteers to gather watershed data. I went to the training event last night and met some of the neatest people. One gentleman had been living in the watershed since he was eight and took the time to point out all the coolest places in the watershed. Another was a teacher-camp counsellor-outdoor ed (probably girl guide leader type) who was just lots of fun and had her own neat stories. Not to mention the enthusiastic MNR guy and the local fisheries biologist who were both cool and knowledgeable.

So, here is the link to the Check Your Watershed Day brochure. If you are really keen, they may still be looking for a few more people (Wilmot is east of Oshawa though) It'll be a day of measuring small streams on back roads.
