Teens interested in either learning the art of fly-fishing or improving their basic skill level along side some of Vermont’s most accomplished fly anglers, are invited to apply.
Prospective campers are encouraged to apply no later than April 15 to secure a spot for this year’s program. The cost for the 5-day camp is $425. Scholarships may be available on an “as-needed” basis.
|Webinar - Using i-Tree Hydro to Model Green Infrastructure|
|Event Start Date:||6/27/13 Thu. Event End Date: 6/27/13 Thu.|
|Event Start Time:||02:30 PM04:00 PM|
|Description:||i-Tree Hydro is a stand alone application designed to simulate the effects of changes in tree and impervious cover characteristics within a defined watershed on stream flow and water quality. It was designed specifically to handle urban vegetation effects so urban natural resource managers and urban planners can quantify the impacts of changes in tree and impervious cover on local hydrology to aid in management and planning decisions. Researchers at the State University of New York in Syracuse are using i-Tree Hydro to model the hydrologic impacts (water quality and quantity) of green infrastructure. Green infrastructure includes a variety of methods such as rain gardens, bioretention basins, and green roofs used to capture, infiltrate, and transpire rainfall and runoff. Using predominantly natural processes, green infrastructure can clean water, restore soils, landscapes, and receiving water, improve air temperature and quality, and fortify and sustain our economy.|
