No registration is required for the orientations, but you need to attend one during the week of February 1 through 5.
If you love making maps or working in GIS, then this position is for you. Volunteers will assist in the creation of maps using GIS to help communicate information visually to our audiences. Some examples include: - Fun Map of Wingra Watershed - Map showing attractions in Lake Wingra watershed - Maps that communicate data in a visually appealing way Volunteers will commit to one mapping project at the beginning of the semester with the guidance of FoLW. Volunteers would work on the map and provide weekly updates with FoLW advisor until the map is in final draft form. If time permits, volunteers can take on additional mapping projects. Final map products would need to be in JPG, PNG or PDF format and volunteers would need to have access to their own GIS software. Volunteers must have experience using GIS software to create maps. If you are interested in this position, you can work flexibly to complete your two hours per week. The proposed time below is to help you budget time into your week. This position can apply toward the UW Sustainability volunteering requirement.
We promote a healthy Lake Wingra through an active watershed community.
