Fish Creek Digital Mapping
Wednesday, February 17, 2021 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Online using Zoom Video Conferencing Technology
Presented by Emma Stroud, Citizen Science & Stewardship Coordinator
In 2020 the Friends’ digital mapping project revolutionized the way we record and collect data in Fish Creek Provincial Park. Join us for this fascinating presentation to learn how we collected data using the digital app for the following programs: Riparian Restoration Monitoring, Weed Watchers and Weed Whackers, Beaver Coexistence, and Park Watch. The app has allowed us to streamline the collection process and greatly improved the efficiencies of these programs. Emma Stroud, Citizen Science & Stewardship Coordinator, will be creating Story Maps to summarize the success of the various programs, and offer a sneak peek into what is coming this year.
Emma is a University of Calgary alumni who has focused her work in terrestrial and aquatic ecology. Through six years of volunteer work, field experience, and working with industry, she has refined her interests in conservation and restoration, narrowing her focus onto the non-profit sector. Exploring tide pools, creeks, wetlands, and rivers have always been favorite pastimes, making the reality of working with volunteers in Fish Creek an exciting opportunity.
