Dr. Smith had us test this out for them at the Convention. Looks like they've been quite busy. They really only had "Search By Species" then. This "By Map" totally rules! Thanks for posting this Pete.

Imagine that... Creek Chubsuckers, River Chubs and Spotted Suckers in Swan Creek at South Avenue and in Springfield Township. Now all you'll find are shopping carts, budwesier cans and county posted signs saying "Do Not Touch This Water!" <sigh> I'm gonna have to get in there after the next good flood dilutes all the nasties and check it out. I've been apprehensive up until now because all of the postings, but I think it's time to put on a respirator to avoid getting a drink, and go at it.
