SRA Board Meeting Minutes
SRA February 17, 2009 Meeting Minutes
1. The Severn River Association guest speaker was Gerald Weingrad, who gave this presentation. Senator Weingrad is passionate about the environment and has become a great leader in educating awareness to environmental problems. He walks the talk -- by preaching how we all of should limit our footprint. If you missed this talk -- I highly recommend you try to attend another -- as he is on the speaker circuit often. One thing that he cannot tolerate is complacency. We all must be a voice for the Earth and he recommends writing letters to government and political officials and letters to the editors of newspapers. Be a voice for the environment.
2. Motion was made by Bob von Saal to give Anne Pearson $200 for Stormwater workshop. Motion passed.
3. Steve Barry reported on Watershed Stewardship training. They have a very good response -- goal was 25 and they have 33 registered. Plan to redo the training in the fall.
4. Bob Whitcomb announced that the spring Stream Cleanup will occur on April 4, 2009. SRA will go back to the Indian Creek Watershed -- but the other side.
