Niagara Closeup: The trout are talking. And we need to listen.


A feature article posted by the St. Catharines Standard shines the spotlight on how NC’s Geographic Information Systems – Geospatial Management, and Ecosystem Restoration students are among groups working on projects to monitor Twelve Mile Creek. It reveals how during the summer of 2016 students first encountered an unusually cold stream, that wasn’t marked on their map, and their interest in the site ever since. The importance of the stream for brook trout and what it reveals about the ecosystem is also discussed within the article.

Comments from GIS instructor Ian Smith and student Nick Wasilik are included as well as several photos.
