5 permanent transects were established in tributaries to Ashland Creek. These are regularly visited to measure:

  • residual pool depths
  • substrate embeddedness
  • canopy closure
  • aquatic macroinvertebrate assemblages


Macroinvertebrate sampling has been largely coordinated  by SOU and further sampling has been built into an ongoing SOU entomology class. Started in 2011, this annual data collection at permanent stream monitoring transects helps measure water quality in the watershed. Read the latest update on this work here.
