Here’s how you can get around the problem and still submit an accurate snowpack depth measurement!
On March 2nd and 3rd students at Western Colorado University ventured out into the Gunnison Valley to collect snow depth measurements for CSO. The project brought all ages of students from first years to graduates together to learn about the importance of the snowpack through snowshoeing and hands on measurements.
Stream Tracker, like Community Snow Obs, is a community monitoring network. However, instead of snow depths, project members focus their observations on intermittent streams—streams that do not always have flowing water.
The Living Snow Project (LSP) is a citizen science program housed at Western Washington University that studies “watermelon snow,” or snow algae.
The Wildflower Watch program would like your help gathering data on phenology (timing of ecological events) in the area surrounding Jackson, Wyoming.
