Green River Community College Natural Resources classes being held in May Valley.

Green River Community College Natural Resources department has teamed with the Four Creeks Unincorporated Area Council to hold the Stream and Wetland Management and Restoration classes in May Valley.

FCUAC’s Atlas Program has long teamed with GRCC Geographical Information System students for mapping and spatial analysis in the Four Creeks/Tiger Mountain Community Service Area.  Starting this quarter, that relationship has expanded to include Natural Resources students.

In January, 2014, the students, faculty, residents, support organizations, and community leaders met at the Red Barn boarding facilities to conduct the first class at the study site.  After orientation and Q & A, the students took samples from May Creek to begin their analysis.

Along with the May Valley site, the students will study an area along one of the May Creek tributaries being stewarded by residents, with support from local community organizations.
