The Chippewa River Watershed Project (CRWP) is hosting its Annual Meeting on Thursday, April 18th, at the Starbuck Community Center in Starbuck, MN. The evening begins with registration and social gathering at 5 pm, meal at 6 pm and program at 7 pm. During the social gathering displays will be set up for guests to enjoy. The program will include updates on the CRWP, results from the 2012 monitoring season, and the introduction of a conservation planning tool that incorporates both biophysical data and stakeholder values to identify priorities.
Water quality and watershed landscape issues are a complex mixture of economic, recreation and environmental concerns. Water quality data, land use data, and biological data can help us make decisions but the true driver is the people of the watershed. This year's CRWP Annual Meeting will be an opportunity to share your preferences and values as they relate to watershed restoration and protection needs. Your input will be collected through a systematic and interactive method to be incorporated into the conservation planning model.
Everyone is invited to attend this public event. Meals are free with pre-registration. Reservations are requested by Tuesday, April 16th. Call 320-269-2139 x120 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to register. More information on this event can be found at www.chippewariver.com
