August CreekSpeak: Mapping Putah Creek: Historical Ecology of the Putah - Cache Floodplain

Date: Thu, Aug 15th 2019, 7:00pm
Location: Davis Branch Library Blanchard Room 315 East 14th St. Davis, 95616
Description:

Join Putah Creek Council's fourth CreekSpeak talk of 2019 on Thursday, August 15, 2019. 

From its headwaters to the point where it enters the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta, Putah Creek travels through 4 counties - and much of its route is located on private property. With so little of the creek publically accessible, mapping technologies like GIS (geographic information system) are critical for understanding the intricacies of the creek as it flows through such a large watershed. GIS data can be more complex than a simple map - it can be used to analyze vegetation, elevation, and much more - and that's what JayLee Tuil, Ph.D., will be sharing with us at this event.

JayLee is a postdoctoral scholar at UC Davis and spent much of her Ph.D. working on a mapping project of Putah Creek. Join us at this CreekSpeak event to hear her findings and learn what she uncovered about Putah Creek!

The presentation begins at 7pm at the Davis Branch Library Blanchard Room (315 E. 14th Street, Davis).
