Once again standing as a model for other organizations with ambitions for citizen-powered science and stewardship, SYRCL has released a package of tools including our custom River Monitoring Database, and an entirely new version of “Yuba Shed”, the Yuba River Watershed Information System. These tools enable SYRCL to make the best use of River Monitoring data, and to present that data within the context of all relevant information for the Yuba River watershed. Yuba Shed has been designed to support cooperative watershed assessment, and includes a dynamic watershed mapping utility. Both products are based on open-source coding and available to other organizations. The full set of products, including resources for SYRCL volunteer monitors, has been posted at the River Monitoring page. The development of these tools was supported by the Sierra Nevada Conservancy, and the outstanding contributions of some brilliant and hard-working SYRCL members.
