We present first results from an NOAO Survey Project entitled ``A Deep Imaging Survey of Nearby Star-Forming Clouds." We emphasize results from a 7.5 square degree survey of the Perseus Molecular Cloud in narrowband filters using the MOSAIC camera on the Mayall 4 meter telescope at Kitt Peak. We have discovered dozens of new shocks from protostellar outflows (Herbig-Haro or HH objects) and mapped their distribution relative to molecular gas and infrared sources (candidate young stellar objects).
