Thanks to the support of The News-Times - through notices, a newspaper article, and the wonderful "Christmas gift" editorial of Dec. 27 - Columbia County Adopt-a-Stream did achieve "at least 10 new" volunteers.
Actually we received 11, including a now-certified 14-year-old and an enthusiastic pre-teen, proven to be talented and dedicated!
Because we evaluate stream quality in several ways, these same people will be expected at our Feb. 3 biology workshop at 9 a.m. at Reed Creek Wetlands Park to round out their skills.
Others interested in Adopt-a-Stream can contact me at (706) 868-0296 or email@example.com, as we'll have new ventures for them, too.
Among the ventures are watershed studies that involve advising homeowners and builders of means by which they can forestall and even improve water quality in their neighborhood streams. Meetings with some homeowners are underway right now.
