South River Federation General Membership Meeting: Community Collaboration in Our Watershed
Last summer, the South River Federation started a new tradition—South River Days. This week long event is about celebrating and connecting with the river, whether it is through a project, a meeting, an oyster flotilla, or a kayak on the river. We want to give everyone the opportunity to be a part of the river. The Federation is happy to announce the 2nd Annual South River Days Celebration starting Saturday, June 2nd and running through Saturday, June 9th. Since it is the 40th Anniversary of the Clean Water Act, this years’ theme is Drinkable, Fishable, And Swimmable Water.
On Tuesday, June 5th, the South River Federation will host its General Membership Meeting at the Londontowne Community Hall starting at 7:00 p.m. Chesapeake Conservation Corps Volunteers Carol Wong and Joe Ports will give a presentation on their experience with the South River and West/Rhode River Snapshot. Doug Lashley, of GreenVest, will be presenting on ways communities can collaborate on different projects in the watershed. Doug is currently working with the Federation on a variety of projects and is seeking to facilitate restoration opportunities throughout the watershed to help reduce pollution loads to the river. This meeting is open to the public so bring yourself and friend to find out ways you can get involved with the Federation.
