Free Trinity River Watershed Poster Available
Posters of a custom, hand-drawn cartoon map of the Trinity River Watershed are now available to the public at no charge. Drawn by a cartoonist in Seattle, the map features landmarks, recreation activities, wildlife, unique community and tribal features in a not-to-scale format.
The map was developed by the Trinity River Restoration Program (TRRP) with input from the Trinity Management Council, the TRRP’s governing board of resource agency, tribal, and Trinity County members; and the TRRP’s stakeholder advising board, the Trinity Adaptive Management Work Group.
The Trinity County Resource Conservation District (TCRCD) is helping the TRRP distribute the posters through education and outreach activities.
“I think the map is a great way for kids and adults to learn more about the watershed. People love studying the fun little details,” said Donna Rupp, project coordinator for the TCRCD. “We’d especially like to get the posters out to teachers and students.”
Two sizes are available – an 18” x 22” glossy poster and a smaller, 10” x 14” version on matte paper. While the poster size version would look great on any Trinity River enthusiast’s wall, “the smaller versions make great placemats and teaching tools for the classroom,” says Rupp. “If any restaurant owner wants a supply for placemats, they just need to contact the District.”
The posters are available at both the TCRCD office at 30 Horseshoe Lane, and the TRRP office next to Tops Supermarket inWeaverville. A pdf is also available for download at www.tcrcd.net.
