Nov 5: A Successful Annual Meeting!
Annual Meeting & Speaker Series
On Sunday, November 5, a crowd of 70+ river enthusiasts attended our annual meeting at the newly formed Fort Miller Meetinghouse in Fort Edward, NY. Inspirational speaker, Doug Vincent, spoke about his 28 day, 180 mile canoe trip down the Hudson.
The presentation was part of BkC's annual public meeting held to update as well as collect feedback from the community on its current activities, past successes, and future plans for the Battenkill watershed and beyond.
BkC's plans for 2018 include a renewed focus on promoting clean water & open space within the Battenkill watershed & beyond!
Our work is supported in part by the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation's Conservation Partnership Program administered by The Land Trust Alliance.
