VT: Albert & Bessie Kronkosky State Natural Area Pebble Count-Bandera County

November 16, 2023 @ 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM

We will start the “Pebble Count” on Rudist Reef Reach, Bessie’s Creek this Thursday and Friday 9:00 a.m.- Noon.  Contact Tom Denyer at tom.den1917@gmail.com or 830 522 4566.  It will be wet and slippery.

The “Pebble Count” is a simple but elegant protocol in use since at least 1954.  It provides baseline estimates of how much and what types of sediment  (e.g., sand, gravel, cobble) a stream has transported.  These estimates then help monitor changes in stream function and suggest guidelines for riparian restoration.
