Public Meeting: What’s Up with the Friends of the Rio?
What: Public Meeting
Where: Montoya Community Center, 245 N. Thorpe Road
When: Thursday, October 4th, 6:00-7:30pm
Friends of the Rio de Flag has been busy over the last year. Join us October 4th to learn more about where we are at and where we are headed.
Last fall, the Friends received and EPA Environmental Justice Small grant aimed at building partnerships and gathering information in the Southside Neighborhood where the Rio de Flag and localized flooding have caused issues for generations.
As our EPA grant wraps up, we are preparing to receive a WaterSMART Cooperative Watershed Management grant from the Bureau of Reclamation. The WaterSMART grant will help us gather input from key stakeholders and the public for a watershed restoration plan.
Join us to learn about these projects and how you can be involved moving forward! Presenters include Chelsea Silva and Matt Muchna.
