Our fifth annual meeting was well attended! Many thanks to all that made the gathering successful. The weather was perfect and the refreshments enjoyed. A big thanks to John and Mary Stone for graciously hosting our celebration. Their beautiful home and picturesque courtyard were a wonderful backdrop for the occasion.
Appreciation to volunteers, sponsors and partners that help make RCWA productive over the last five-years and gifts for five-honorees were presented. RCWA emphasized stakeholder involvement for preserving the Richland Creek ecosystem as a beneficial path. Vegetative stream buffers were stressed as the most important defense and that the two major challenges facing our aquatic system were urbanization and climate change. Richland Creek is ours to make healthy again.
