Join Southern Oregon University Graduate Students Elva Manquera, and Crystal Nichols for two short talks as they share their share stories of their field research along Dead Indian Creek at the Vesper Meadow Preserve. From the fall of 2018, through this summer of 2019, they looked at stream and creekside health by several different measures. Their work marks the launch of Vesper Meadow community science monitoring programs and is designed to be continued in public programs for years to come. And of course, along the way they amassed a few experiences worth sharing: from caddisfly larvae in their stone homes, getting stranded while searching for signs of beaver, and pounding in metal posts for reference points in the snow.
