Stack Watch Walk - August 17th - 6pm
Join us for a Stack Watch Walk at Windermere Basin Park in east Hamilton on Tuesday, August 17th at 6pm. We'll teach you the basics of how to OBSERVE, DOCUMENT, & REPORT visible air pollution emissions from local industrial sources. The session will last approximately 1 hour.
Please come prepared for a short walk on flat, gravel terrain along the park trail to the lookout at Red Hill Creek. We'll be practicing safe physical distancing and we encourage participants to bring and wear a mask during the session. For our morning walk we encourage you to wear sunscreen and bring a hat & sunglasses, and some water.
