The Friends of the White & North Fork Rivers are hosting a special event that I thought you might be interested in, should you be in the area on March 6th.
Check out the announcement from their president, Jane Darr, below:
Friends of the Rivers schedules Urban Streams Program
Friends hosts speaker, Steve Filipek,
Assistant Chief of Fisheries,
Arkansas Game and Fish Commission
Tuesday, March 6, 2012 – 5:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.
ASUMH Campus, McMullen Lecture Hall, Dryer Hall
Steve Filipek, Assistant Chief of Fisheries for the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission will talk about ways to preserve the natural flow and design of urban streams while saving small towns and cities thousands of dollars. The event is scheduled for Tuesday, March 6 at 5:00 p.m. with program to start at 5:30 in McMullen Lecture Hall in the Dryer Hall on the ASUMH campus. All interested citizens are invited. For information call Friends of the North Fork and White Rivers at (870) 430-5777 or visit www.friendsoftherivers.org.
The Goal of the event is to initiate a fresh conversation with key citizens in our watershed on the role of the urban stream in non-point source pollution, storm water runoff and development issues. Steve’s power point will provide numerous visuals of creative (and not so creative) choices made in Arkansas. He will highlight the work of various partner organizations and touch on some of the funding opportunities available.
Thank you, Jane Darr.
