Celebrate Geography with ACC Stormwater
November includes both GIS Day on Wednesday, November 15, and Geography Awareness Week from Sunday, November 12 until Saturday, November 18. GIS (geographic information system) is an integral part of stormwater management, from creating maps of stormwater infrastructure and polluted streams, to tracking the placement of cutting edge green infrastructure. Geography is embedded into almost everything we do.
In honor of these national events, ACC Stormwater is hosting a family-friendly scavenger hunt and encouraging everyone to participate in our official Geocache GeoTrail, “Water Logged.”
The geocache trail, which will bring participants up close and personal with several good examples of stormwater management and green infrastructure, launched on November 14 of 2015. Interested participants should visit www.geocaching.com and search for “Water Logged.” Anyone who completes the trail and collects all five buttons is eligible to receive a prize! All you need is a cell phone with GPS and internet access.
The From Street to Stream Scavenger Hunt will take place at Trail Creek Park on Wednesday, November 15, from 3:30 pm until 5:30 pm. Using maps and clues, families will follow the journey of a rain drop as it moves from the street to the stream. We hope you will join us for a fall evening exploring one of our beautiful local parks and streams.
