Our annual stream survey training workshop for new volunteers is being planned for Saturday May 27th. The session will be carried out along the shoreline of Sawmill Creek along Riverside Dr/Rideau River Eastern Pathway. There is no parking on site, but Billings Bridge Shopping Center is near-by. If you have joined us for stream surveys in the past or have come out to a training session in the last few years, there is no need to attend the training session again.  Also, if you are unavailable for this session, but you are interested in helping with stream surveys, the workshop is non-mandatory as we always provide “on-the-job” training.

Parking: There is no parking on site but Billing Bridge Shopping Center is near-by (https://goo.gl/maps/jwQkzB7gF6F2)

Meeting location: We will be meeting on the Rideau River Eastern Pathway along the shoreline of Sawmill Creek. From Billings Bridge you will walk North on Bank Street until the Rideau River, turn right onto the Rideau River Eastern Pathway and walk towards Sawmill Creek, RVCA staff will be at that location
