River Keeper Program Kicks-Off Second Year

Our Schrems River Keeper program kicked-off for 2010 on May 8th. Volunteers (l-r) George Buursma, Josh Zuiderveen, Jim Flamming (‘Chief River Keeper’), Gary Winlow, Ryan Burke and Rich Brand gathered monitoring data from the six devises that remained in the Rogue River system through the winter. Also, new ‘loggers’ (monitoring device) were installed in: Barkley Creek, Shaw Creek and Cedar Creek. Loggers are also scheduled for installation on Penyer Creek (Muskegon watershed) and Buck Creek which runs through Grand Rapids.

Look for more detailed information and actual data to follow.
