Peg Map

Public Sediment, Alameda Creek

Alameda County

Public Sediment created a 3D printed topographic map of Alameda Creek from baylands to mid-watershed with pegs. The activity asks kids and adults to mark how they move through the watershed using a rubberband (i.e. routes to school, how they get to work, where they play sports, etc), paying attention to whether they cross the creek.This activity is aimed at visualizing how people move through the watershed and use the creek.

Your Turn

Print out a map of your community, place map on a bulletin cork board. Using push pins create a grid over the pinned up map. Use large rubber bands to map the routes you and your family take throughout your community.
