Eric Russo 2/24/10 Sustainable Cities Creek Mapping Exercise The river I went to was Fort River in Amherst Massachusetts. The parts of Fort River that I saw were at the location of Groff Park and where route 116 crosses over. On one side of the river it is all opened fields, a play ground area, benches, and an overall really healthy environment for the water way. On the other side was a very steep hill with some vegetation and a few streams flowing down the hill into the river from the woods. The riparian areas on both sides were, from what I could see, not much. On the side with the steep hill there were some scattered trees, many which had fallen into the river, and it was hard to see if there was any other vegetation because it was snowing. From the look of it though, it didn’t seem like there was really anything else. On the side with the opened land there was no riparian area at all. It looked liked the river could have been widened because instead of there being vegetation there was a rocked terrace, and nothing in-between. There were a few trees on top of the terrace, but not enough to make any impact on the river.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
