Welcome to the resource site for Up Fanno Creek, a book by Eric L. Lindstrom. Official publication date for the book is November 1st, 2012. However, in order to fully check out the print quality of the book it's been necessary to make it available at both Amazon.com and OnDemand Books. I guess you could say the book is in the Beta Stage of development.
There are two websites that offer direct support for the book - this one and a FaceBook page. My goal is to develop the book and its support sites into a general resource for people interested in getting to know more about Fanno Creek, or, better still, their own watershed address. Elsewhere on this blog the visitor can access information about the book, including sales information. There's a map resource area as well. Like most of the other pages, that one is still being developed; but I think the three maps that are currently available offer a great deal of insight into both the Fanno Creek Watershed and the Missoula Floods that contributed so significantly to its current configuration and composition.
The last button on the menu bar will take you directly to USGS's water quality monitoring station at Fanno Creek and Durham Road in Tigard, Oregon. This is a wonderful site, but it is in no way remotely affiliated with my own. The equipment is situated beside and under the bridge on Durham Road, which is located roughly a mile north of Fanno Creek's confluence with the Tualatin River. There's a wealth if information at this site, all of it available online. I will be discussing both this site and its data in later posts.
I allow no advertising on this site, but I am happy to post notifications for meetings and work-parties focused on improving the general health of the watershed.
Unless an item is otherwise attributed, I am solely responsible for the opinions and other content presented on this site.
For the record, I volunteer with several organizations that may, from time to time, be mentioned on this site. None of these organizations are associated with this blog in any manner or form:
I maintain two blogs: this one, which is brand new, and another called WatershedEvents that's been around for three years. Both are closely related, but this is the official site for Fanno Creek information.
Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you will return on a regular basis.
