Get to Know Your Watershed Speaker Series continues on February 22
Join us on Tuesday, February 22 on Zoom or on Facebook for the next program in the Get to Know Your Watershed Speaker Series. In Part II of Partners for a Healthy Watershed, we’ll continue the discussion with groups working on conservation, ecosystem health, recreation, education and community engagement projects in the watershed, including Bridgette Johns, project coordinator for Southwest New Mexico ACT, Alicia Edwards, Grant County Outdoor Recreation and Trails Master Plan, and Catalina Claussen, coordinator of the Youth Conservation Corps at Aldo Leopold Charter School.
Leigh Jenkins, coordinator of the Silver City Watershed Keepers, will moderate the webinar. The event is the second of several programs to be held this spring as part of the Get to Know Your Watershed Speaker Series.
Future presentations include professional licensed geologist Dylan Duverge on March 22. As part of World Water Day celebrations, Duverge will give a presentation on “Using Online Tools and Web Map Services to Understand Your Watershed.” On March 26, Duverge will lead a follow-up field trip on “The VIP’s of Stream Morphology”. In May, retired Silver City Museum director and historian Susan Berry will give a presentation on the history of Big Ditch Park. In June, a discussion of forest management in the upper Silver City Watershed will be featured.
