This page, and associated links, is dedicated to
the detailed examination of a small part of the upper Pine River watershed
located in Melancthon Township, Dufferin County, Ontario, Canada.
The work is being undertaken by Don Hayward as a learning experience in
Gaining an understanding of the principles, concepts and analytical tools of several disciplines in environmental science is an essential goal of the effort. Hopefully there will be a resulting detailed understanding of this specific segment of the watershed in terms of its physical and biological parameters and processes. There is no time limit to this project.
As others help out or become more involved, they will be listed in the area of the "SiteA Team". All participants and land owners within the area will receive a copy of an annual summary of each years work. Those interested in helping or receiving an e-mail copy of the reports can contact Don at firstname.lastname@example.org.
