Yadkin Riverkeeper meeting Thursday at Catawba College

Catawba College’s Center for the Environment will be the location for Yadkin Riverkeeper’s Annual Meeting on Thursday, Oct. 20.
“We are pleased to partner with Dr. John Weir at the Center to help make people aware of the incredible resource they have right here in Salisbury,” said Yadkin Riverkeeper Dean Naujoks. “It’s truly a natural alliance.”
Yadkin Riverkeeper, a non-profit organization charged with protecting and advocating on behalf of the Yadkin River River Basin, moves its annual meeting to a different region each year to emphasize the scope of this watershed — the second largest in the state. “People simply don’t realize that their drinking water comes from the Yadkin,” said Naujoks. “Making them aware of just this one fact is the first step.”
The meeting begins with an informal gathering at 6 p.m. At 6:30, members and guests will be updated on accomplishments in 20111 and informed of plans for 2012. Dolly Farrell, development coordinator at the Center for the Environment, will speak about the center’s programs, followed by Naujok’s introduction of the guest speaker, N.C. State University Professor Dr. JoAnn Burkholder, director of the Center for Applied Aquatic Ecology, who will speak on nutrient management issues.
Members, their guests, and interested members of the community are welcome to attend.
RSVP to marilyn@yadkinriverkeeper.org or register to attend at: www.yadkinriverkeeper.org. The Center for the Environment is at 2300 W. Innes St., between the Robertson College Community Center and Omwake Dearborn Chapel.
