Kings River group hosts annual meeting
The board of the Kings River Watershed Partnership invites both members and the general public to attend its annual general meeting at 6 p.m. Tuesday, March 24, in the Community Room at the Carroll Electric building across from Walmart in Berryville.
Students from Clear Spring School will give a presentation on their River Studies, a comprehensive curriculum that was co-funded with grants from The Nature Conservancy and KRWP. The course offered hands-on activities including a bug kick to identify invertebrates that can indicate the health of waterways, and water testing sampling to look for potential pollutants or changes in water quality.
John Chapman with TNC will update attendees on the Conservancy's most recent efforts to improve the health of the Kings River near Rock House bridge.
Ray Warren will outline plans for two upcoming river clean-ups.
Several board members are up for re-election and there will be a brief business meeting before the presentations. Refreshments will be served.
The kayak to be be raffled off will be on display as well, and a membership table will be set up for new and renewing memberships.KRWP T-shirts will be available, too.
