Battenkill Conservancy to Host Noted Watershed Advocate
On Thursday, October 27, the Battenkill Conservancy looks forward to welcoming the public to what promises to be an engaging presentation by one of our area’s most dedicated and informed watershed advocates, Doug Reed, who will share the lessons learned during his 30 years of environmental activism and promoting greater awareness of watershed protection. Reed’s wealth of experience and hands-on work with schools and students throughout the Hudson River basin has him currently involved in the PFOA crisis playing out in the area. Drawing from his past accomplishments and experiences, including as a founding member of the Battenkill Conservancy, the founder and director of the Hudson River Basin Watch and now an advocate for all those impacted by the PFOA crisis, Reed’s presentation will highlight what communities have done right and can continue to do to better protect and preserve our planet’s most important natural resource – clean and abundant drinking water.
The presentation will follow BkC’s annual membership meeting. In addition to presenting new nominees to be voted onto the Board of Directors, the members will recognize the
service of long-time board member and current treasurer Jan Wolski upon her retirement. The meeting will be held at Community Hall, 6 Academy Street, Greenwich, N.Y., beginning at 6 p.m., with refreshments and light snacks. Email [email protected] to learn more.
