Watershed Council Minutes:
Victor Dodier called the meeting to order at 6:30 p.m. Present were: Ed Emrick, Roger Heusser, Glenn Dolphin, Susan Kephart, Victor Dodier, and John Savage.
Victor reported that there was a great turnout for the Make-A-Difference day work party at the Salem Hospital Site. The Hospital provided $300 for native plants, and the City provided tools. Thanks to Roger Heusser for organizing the event and to Ryan Kinnett for recruiting student volunteers.
The Council brainstormed possible projects for the winter and early spring. Projects discussed include removing blackberry and thistle and planting camas at Fairview; removing weeds along the Woodmansee nature trail; shoring up the bank on the Mission Mill property; removing weeds at the Liberty School and Kroger Park bioswales; and refurbishing the bark trail at Fairview.
Victor will be submitting volunteer time forms to the Oregon Watershed Enhancement Board to secure a $57,000 grant for the Salem-Keizer Watershed Councils. Money will be used to contract with the Marion Soil and Water Conservation District to provide administrative and technical support.
Respectfully Submitted, John Savage, Secretary.
