Introduction The Laguna Creek Watershed is located in Fremont, California covering 25.1 mi2. Engineered channels along the flatlands of the watershed allow the water that comes from the Mission, Sabercat, Aqua Caliente, Vargas, Washington, Canada del Aliso, and Morrison creeks to flow into Laguna Creek. Laguna Creek drains into the foothills of the Diablo Range and Mud Slough. (Laguna Creek Watershed) The Laguna Creek Watershed Council is a nonprofit alliance that serves to protect Laguna Creek, associated riparian corridors, and tributary streams. The goals are accomplish through education of residents, community participation, and finding balanced solutions with all stakeholders. (Mission and Vision)
Q2. How did they change the marketing mix to fit their new target market? They targeted those people who would recognize and appreciate quality lodging and not those who were seeking “cheap sleep”. Inviting potential guests or individuals who might influence visitor hotel selection to launch parties, swim parties, cocktail parties and other planned events. Targeting supportive hospitality businesses. Packages that supported local businesses were developed.
The mill creek watershed is 166 square miles with 450,000 people. The main sources of water are rivers, aquifers, and rainwater. The major body of water is the Ohio River. The land around it is hilly.The Mill Creek lies at the heart, soul, and industrial center of Greater Cincinnati. This 28-mile stream begins in Liberty Township, travels through 34 communities, and flows into the Ohio River just west of downtown Cincinnati. The Mill Creek Watershed has withstood two centuries of urbanization and is poised for a comeback. The Mill Creek drew settlers over 200 years ago looking for rich, fertile farmland and water power to support industry, ultimately building Cincinnati into a prosperous industrial powerhouse.
The tar creek mining site originally was owned by a Native American tribe, the Quapaw. The Quapaw wanted to keep these lands, but the Bureau of Indian Affairs deemed members opposing a transaction to mining companies “incompetent” (1). In such a case the business could continue and the Bureau of Indian Affairs sold the lands to mining companies. In essence these lands were stolen from the Quapaw because they were ripe for mining. These mines were then used from approximately 1891 to 1970. In the 79 years the mines were open 1.7 million metric tons (~3.75 billion pounds) of lead and 8.8 million metric tons (~19.4 billion pounds) of zinc were withdrawn from the mine (2). The entire area around Tar Creek is known as the tri-state mining
The Buffalo Creek flood of West Virginia is believed to be the most devastating coal relate disaster in West Virginia history. The flood occurred in the Buffalo Creek area of Logan County on February 26, 1972 when three dams broke and released 132 million gallons of water and coal waste known by miners as “gob,” and is a thick sludge-like material. The gob contains many toxic chemicals and pollutants such as mercury and arsenic that are left behind from the coal mining process. The wastewater would lie in settling ponds and dams until it could be properly disposed of. The water that was left over from processing coal would be disposed of in two different ways. Some of the water would be pumped from the dam back to the “tipple”, otherwise

Take a Trip Down the Ogeechee River Whether you plan to fish, hunt ducks, or simply take a canoe or kayak trip, the Ogeechee Tiver is a great place to spend an afternoon outdoors. Put a boat in one of the many landings or stay along the banks; anyone with a fishing license can fish legally along the banks of public rivers. Find your lucky fishing hole as the river is filled with red breast, suckers, shad, rock crappie, bass, and catfish. Enjoy the scenic views of high bluffs and wildlife as you drift down the river that runs wild across the flat land of Jenkins County. Public access to the river is available at the Bull Hole located in the Herndon Community, Scarboro Landing located at the Scarboro Community just off Highway 17 South, Old
Since the settlement of the American West, rivers have experienced changes in the natural flows and movements. Among these processes flooding has become controlled as dams have been built. Esselman et al. (2011) tracked numerous categories of anthropocentric activities through geographical informational systems. The team found that upstream fish habitats
A site called Coobool Creek on the Wakool River, located between Swan Hill and Deniliquin in the Murray River Valley was where G. M. Black accumulated 126 skulls from the suface area near Doherty’s Hut at the Coobool Crossing in 1950 and they were studied by Brown. The 126 crania
The issue is the idea of the second airport being constructed at Badgerys’s Creek. This affects the environment of Badgerys’s Creek greatly as it can destroy such a beautiful site.
There are 24 named waterfalls in Ricketts Glen State Park in the U.S. state of Pennsylvania along Kitchen Creek as it flows in three steep, narrow valleys, or glens. They range in height from 9 feet (2.7 m) to the 94-foot (29 m) Ganoga Falls. Ricketts Glen State Park is named for R. Bruce Ricketts, a colonel in the American Civil War who owned over 80,000 acres (32,000 ha) in the area in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, but spared the old growth forests in the glens from clearcutting. The park, which opened in 1944, is administered by the Bureau of State Parks of the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR). Nearly all of the waterfalls are visible from the Falls Trail, which Ricketts had built from 1889 to
Hydrologic studies has always been the subdiscipline of environmental science that has most intrigued me; probably because the eco- and geological systems that comprise surface and shallow groundwater systems are so inexorably entwined and very delicate. Both of the virtual labs were interesting, and paint a clear picture of how we affect our hydrosphere and how that, in turn, affects us. Spotsylvania County and the city of Fredericksburg share four water treatment facilities that pull water from the Mott's Run Reservoir, the Ni River, and the Rappahannock River, which is the largest river in the local area, the other two being smaller tributaries that feed into it. The Rappahannock River is a significant body of water, providing the potable water for roughly a quarter-million people. Toward the coast the river sees mostly recreational and some light industrial use, and further upstream it is affected by many small to midsized agricultural operations that take place on the land adjacent to the river.
Longfellow creek is the second largest bearing creek in Seattle. Every year, salmon return to the creek but few make it all the way to spawning due to the threatened habitat. This is one of many reasons why they need our help. Restoring the habitat along the creek as well as adjacent greenspaces will help to improve the water quality and provide the appropriate habitat for the salmon to come (True, 2005). Improving the habitat will help to maintain healthy and thriving forests. They are important to our community because they absorb and filter rain water, produce clean oxygen, provide living spaces for wildlife, and create a place for people to connect with the outdoors. Due to their rapid reproduction, the invasive species are taking away food resources and living space from the native plants, increasing the competition causing native plants to die over time. If these native plants continue to degrade, many animal
Evan Sholudko 27255831 TA Chalmers Economics 308 Boyce December 4th, 2014 Connecticut River Cleanup A giant environmental issue in the Northeastern part of the United States is the Connecticut River and the pollution to it among other environmental issues that directly influence its seriousness and requirement of restoring the river to the healthiest it can be. The Connecticut River is home to a multitude of different fish and is an essential part of the habitat for other types of animals and species. The 410 mile river goes from the edge of Quebec, Canada all the way down to Long Island, New York taking up 11,260 square miles. It spans along five U.S. States and one Canadian province those states being Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Hampshire,
The Trout Creek Mountains are a Great Basin range in Oregon and Nevada in the United States. Oriented generally north–south, the mountains consist mostly of fault blocks of basalt, while the southern end has granitic outcrops. Overall, the faulted terrain is dominated by rolling hills cut by canyons. Most of the range is federal land, and there is little human development, apart from cattle ranching. The public land, dominated by big sagebrush and desert grasses, is open to recreation but is rarely visited. Sage grouse and mountain chickadee are two native bird species, and pronghorn and jackrabbit are common mammals. Despite a dry climate, rare Lahontan cutthroat trout persist in a few streams after declining for much of the 20th century.
