Genesee Meadow Photo-monitoring Protocols and Images

Genesee Meadow Photo-monitoring

Starflower began a photo-monitoring program in fall of 2003. Eight photopoint locations were established and digital photos were taken quarterly. The resulting pictures have been archived and are accessible below. The pictures are grouped by photopoint number.

The map below shows the locations of the photopoints. Click on a photopoint number on the map to see images of the locations and directions to the photopoint locations.
