Annual Meeting & Spring Workshop 2013

You’re invited!

We are hosting our first annual meeting, and we’d like you to join us to learn about some of our accomplishments over the past two years and how you can get involved! Since our kick-off gathering in spring 2011, we have been hard at work with citizen science volunteers surveying and mapping the watershed, creating a 5-year strategic plan, and working with students and partners to develop environmental education and outreach initiatives. We will share the highlights of these and other activities and will introduce you to your Board of Directors and Action Teams.

Spring Workshop–Designing a Restoration Model for Impaied Streams

This workshop will provide hands-on opportunities to learn about the health of our watershed and how our streams become degraded. Working with knowledge gathered from our volunteer watershed suvey and current high resolution aerial imagery, you will learn how to identify and map at-risk areas contributing to water quality problems in some of our watersheds most impaired streams. We will dicuss and share ideas about how to design and implement affordable and lasting solutions to stabilze our valuable soils, and improve water and habitat quality in our streams and ground water. The workshop will be a great opportunity to gather with neighbors, natural resource managers, scientists, educators, and others to amplfy the converstiaon about what is already being done in the watershed to make positive changes and what more we can accomplish together.

Bring your binoculars!
This is an optional tour following the annual meeting and workshop, and can be incorporated into your drive home. We will carravan by car to our watershed’s largest protected natural area–over 6,000 acres of floodplain forest, barrens, wet prairie, and conservation farmlands–to learn about past, present, and future conservation efforts, and how we and wildlife all benefit. Bring your binoculars to observe returning migratory birds and other wildlife!
