Expanding the Firelands Coastal Tributaries Report Cards

Caroline Wicks and Alex Fries traveled to Sandusky, Ohio, where they conducted a training on producing report cards for the Firelands Coastal Tributaries Watershed Program. This work is a continuation of the first two report cards for Old Woman Creek and Pipe Creek that IAN conducted last year. These small watersheds flow primarily south to north, draining into Lake Erie. While these streams are freshwater, they do include an estuary section, where water is exchanged with Lake Erie. This year's work included transferring the report card analysis and production to the Erie Soil and Water Conservation District, who is the primary producer of these report cards, as well as planning for a new report card for Mills Creek.
