Friends of the Root River to host program about springshed mapping


Mon, Nov 28th, 2016
Posted in All The Great Outdoors

Friends of the Root River (FORR) will hold its second Annual Meeting on Wednesday, November 30 at the Spring Valley Ambulance Station meeting room. Anyone interested in learning more about the non-profit organization is invited to attend. The evening’s program will begin at 7 p.m. with light snacks served starting at 6:30 before the program begins. Jeff Green, MNDNR, will speak about springshed mapping in the watershed. Springshed mapping has been an ongoing effort for several decades in the Root River watershed and other parts of southeast Minnesota to better understand the direction and rate of groundwater flow in our karst geology. The program is open and free to the general public. The physical address of the Ambulance Station is 100 Emergency Drive, but this address is not recognized by many GPS devices. The Ambulance Station is located approximately ¼ mile east from the Spring Valley BP station (State Hwy 16/US Hwy 63 intersection) on the north (left) side of Hwy 16 by the county salt shed.

FORR formed as a non-profit organization last year and is committed to the health of the Root River. There will be additional information at the meeting about who we are and how to provide support, what we have done and what we plan to do in the coming year. Anyone interested in supporting the Friends of the Root River can send donations to P.O. Box 97, Preston, MN 55965. More information about FORR can be found at www.friendsoftherootriver.org.
