Volunteers Needed for Jones Falls Restoration Monitoring!

On Saturday October 15, volunteers will learn how to conduct stability monitoring measurements on Jones Falls at the site of a recent restoration project which restored more than 550 feet of natural trout stream habitat in place of a concrete channel that was virtually devoid of aquatic life.

MDTU has been involved in this collaborative project for several years, including assisting with the contract for the initial design, and the chapter will contribute volunteer support of the monitoring efforts now that construction is complete. Blue Water Baltimore has led the recent construction efforts in partnership with Brightwater Inc. and Environmental Quality Resources, among others. Read more about the project here:

Brightwater, Inc. will provide the equipment, training and supervision for volunteers to survey cross sections, profile and conduct pebble counts to establish a baseline data set for monitoring stability of the project over a five-year period.

Join us on October 15 to become an active volunteer to help assess the impact of this exciting restoration work. No prior experience or special expertise necessary.
