Save the Date! Woodend Restoration Public Meeting
Join us Tuesday, September 15, 2015 from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm at Woodend Nature Sanctuary for a public meeting on upcoming restoration projects. Please, bring a friend or neighbor too. During the meeting, we'll share a draft plan for soaking up stormwater run off at Woodend in order to better protect Rock Creek. We'll also preview plans for more welcoming visitor signage and a deer exclosure fence that will help us restore habitats and increase biodiversity throughout the nature sanctuary.
RSVP with Diane Cameron today.
Funding for the draft retrofit plan is provided through the Montgomery County Water Quality Protection Fund.

Dozens of eager citizen scientists turned out to learn how to identify the benthic macroinvertebrates living in local streams, and to file stream health reports. To join the ever-growing community of stream stewards and clean water advocates, download the Creek Critters app today and get started! Get the app.
