Join us for the LRWA Annual Dinner and Volunteer Recognition Event on Friday, October 27th, 6pm at the Jeremiah Smith Grange Hall, 1 Lee Hook Road, Lee.

Enjoy an evening of good food and homemade desserts and an informative program about our precious water resources.

Program: “Watershed Trifecta:” Nitrogen, Low Flows and Salt” presented by Ted Diers, NHDES Watershed Management Bureau Administrator
Food:  Traditional spaghetti supper, garlic bread, salad and homemade desserts
Fun: Silent Auction items including a special wine collection.
Price: $10 per person, payable at the door.

Ted Diers is the Administrator of the Watershed Management Bureau (WMB) of the New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services.

The WMB includes 20 programs dedicated to achieving Clean Water Act goals, integrating science, data, policy, land use and education to improve the condition of the state’s lakes, rivers, wetlands and tidal waters.  He previously served as manager of the NH Coastal Program, the state’s coastal zone management program.  Over the past 21 years, he has focused his work on state and federal ocean policy, salt marsh and river restoration projects, assisting in revisions of state regulations, managing controversial and diverse issues, and facilitating numerous planning efforts.   He received his BA in Economics and Political Science from Ripon College.  He also earned a Masters Degree from the Yale University School of Forestry and Environmental Studies.

Ted will talk about three of his many projects and programs.   These three things consume a great deal of his time and energy, and often get him invited to the corner office.   He will present his so-called “watershed trifecta”, so place your bets and be ready to find out who wins, who loses and who places.

LRWA

 

The Lamprey River Watershed Association (LRWA) was formed in 1983 to promote the restoration, conservation, wise development and use of the natural resources of the Lamprey River Watershed. Conserving fish and wildlife, forests, soil and water resources along with pollution abatement are key goals of the Association. Through education and research, the LRWA will work to increase the understanding among citizens about the importance of water and land conservation in the watershed.

The Lamprey River Watershed Association works in partnership with other conservation organizations and citizen groups to maintain or improve the natural health and beauty of the watershed. The Lamprey Watershed Association, Inc. is a non-profit 501 (c) (3) organization.

LRWA Board of Directors – meetings are on the second Monday of each month at 5 pm at the Lee Safety Complex.  Public welcome.  Prospective board members encouraged to contact LRWA at volunteer at lrwa-nh.org.  All skills can be put to good use helping to make our watershed sustainable!
