PSU students and the Johnson Creek Watershed Council work together to set up a snapshot monitoring event designed to empower individual landowners to learn about the health of Johnson Creek on their property. Empowering landowners to learn about water quality sampling and get results for their propoerty opens the opportunity to discuss landscape and property management strategies that benefit the creek and meet the goals of the watershed council in the areas of protection, conservation, and restoration of the watershed.
