Have you ever wondered where your water comes from? Or where it goes? Have you ever been confused driving along Idaho rivers that seem to flow to all four cardinal directions, or perplexed when looking at a map wondering “the east fork or the south fork of what?” Jon Kittell will help to set us all straight in this evening presentation designed to orient us all comfortably within our watershed. Jon will describe what happens to our snow in the springtime, will explain the natural contours and boundaries that define our local watersheds, and will discuss the social responsibility that comes with living at the top of a watershed. Jon Kittell is a fly-fishing and whitewater guide on the Middle Fork of the Salmon River during the summer, and drift-boat Steelhead guide during fall and winter. Jon studied Natural Resources Management and Cartography at Colorado State University. Passionate about the health of river ecosystems, Jon regularly engages and educates the general public through his work as a river guide. He also leads expeditions exploring remote river regions and rarely-seen river canyons around the world.
