Help geologist Stan Hart survey ephemeral washes

Help geologist and SSSR board members Stan Hart survey ephemeral washes. You would be assisting with our vital work to document the biological and hydrological values that the mine would destroy.

Stan will teach you how to geolocate key characteristics of an important wash that runs from the area that will be mined toward the Santa Cruz River. The river's health depends on ground and surface water fed into the river by the mountain's ephemeral washes.

We'd like to get one or more people lined up and ready to go during the cool weather that's coming soon.

You must be able to walk several miles at a time over uneven terrain.
