Friends of Hazel River Trained for Summer 2019 Ecological Assessment

Thanks to Natural Capital Board Member Superstar Harriet Giles for organizing a Friends of the Hazel River volunteer group to tackle Hazel River Assessment beginning the Summer of 2019. With a rapid mini-fundraising campaign for new Garmin GPS units successfully under their belts and training on StreamSweepers ecological assessment protocol used on hundreds of miles of other Virginia rivers under their belt, this dedicated group of landowners has agreed to be the first volunteers to attempt this work. In years past, StreamSweepers has used paid Sweeper staff to complete this work.
