I should have posted this sooner.  Oops, there I go shoulding on myself!

This is a webinar tomorrow morning on spring hydrology given by Dr. Larry Stevens, director of the Museum of Northern AZ’s Springs Stewardship Institute in Flagstaff.  

"In this webinar Dr. Larry Stevens...will review the historical discussion on springs classification, present a well-illustrated conceptual springs ecosystem model that clarifies the central role of geomorphology in springs ecosystem function and typology. He will present an illustrated dichotomous key to 17 terrestrial (non-marine) springs ecosystem types and subtypes, and describe those types. In addition, he will discuss the role of co-occurring microhabitats in springs biodiversity.“

It’s Dec 3rd, 9-10AM PST.  Here is the link to the signup page:

I have no idea about the quality of this information.  I haven't watched any yet, just planning to start tomorrow.  However, I was spurred to post this after listening to Paul and Geoff Lawton podcast # 282 where Paul talks about a hidden/underground river/creek on his property.   The Paul and Geoff podcasts are really good, btw...
