Fairview Wetlands Project – Jeanne Fromm

October 11 opportunity for community involvement at the Wetland. Plan to clear a trail on top of the berm and lay mulch.

Watershed Concerns-

Glenn-Gibson Watershed Council (GGWC) is one of the four watershed councils covered by the joint OWEB council support grant. It was part of the 2003-2005 council support grant application. GGWC plans to leave the joint council support grant. GGWC has identified $10,000 plus as its share of the 2003-2005 council support grant and wants to take that money out of the joint council support grant to support itself as a stand-alone council or to join with one of the Polk County watershed councils. At this point, GGWC does not have a budget or work plan in place.
