Hand-drawn stream maps: the typewriter edition!

When you choose a new Volunteer Water Quality Monitoring site, how do you let us know where it is? Do you scan a map and mark it with a highlighter? Print it off of Google Maps and mail it in? Maybe, if you’re savvy, tweet a screenshot to our staff?

Actually, Stream Team doesn’t even have a Twitter account. Yet. But even though we’re a bit behind the times, that’s nothing compared to this next anachronism. In our second edition of the Hand-drawn Maps Series, we’re admiring the handiwork of Delwin Johnson. His pen drawings of Keifer, Coonville and Gravois Creeks came complete with type-written labels. How trendy of him.

You know, the cool thing about typewriters is how they print instantly.

Very cool, Delwin. Very cool.

Do you have a hand-drawn watershed or stream map of your own? Send it to Holly! We’d love to share your creations.
