Friends of Clear Creek
Watershed Stewardship Meeting
When: 5:30-6:30 PM, May 8th, 2013
Where: Traders and Farmers Bank’s Bernice Hilton Walker Building
64 Main Street
Double Springs, Alabama (see map below)
This meeting is to cultivate interest in the formation and strengthening of the Friends of Clear Creek, whose focus is to preserve, protect and improve Clear Creek and its watershed.
Earlier this year, the Alabama Water Watch Program was awarded a modest grant from Patagonia for promoting watershed stewardship in the Clear Creek Watershed. Expressed goals of the grant are to facilitate the formation of a watershed stewardship group, provide watershed stakeholders with training in water quality monitoring and a water monitoring plan for the watershed, and compilation of watershed data that will be used in a town-hall gathering to interpret water quality findings.
Goals of the May 8th meeting are to meet with local stakeholders, promote interest in the formation of a watershed stewardship group – the Friends of Clear Creek, gather information on the watershed and the current issues it faces, communicate goals of AWW’s efforts in the watershed, and discuss scheduling a date for a water monitoring workshop.
PLEASE COME AND JOIN US IN LEARNING HOW WE CAN PROTECT AND PRESERVE CLEAR CREEK FOR FUTURE GENERATIONS!
