All are invited to join members and friends of the Clarkesville GreenWay Community Garden on Thursday, May 11 at 6:00 at the Mary Street Park in Clarkesville. You do not have to be a member of SRWA or use the community garden to attend. We will share information and experiences in the garden, have a brief tour of the garden facilities, and get excited about another season of fresh, locally grown, organic vegetables!
Still not sure you want to attend? We will also have free food! Finger foods and Soque River water will be served (treated, of course).
Calling all potential gardeners - join us for the meeting and also sign up for a plot today (we have a few plots remaining for this season)! Details and garden application may be found by clicking here.
We had a great Earth Day paddle cleanup with Chattahoochee Riverkeeper! Thanks to Wildwood Outfitters for the shuttle and to the City of Cornelia for help with river access. Please see slideshow below for photos from the event.
SRWA Member MEeting Fishes of the Soque - Thursday, June 8
Stoneroller - Left Fork Soque River, 2016
Our first Member Meeting of 2017 will be held at the Clarkesville Library on Thursday, June 8 @ 6:00 p.m. Please join us for a fascinating and informative program by our friend (and Habersham County Cooperative Extension Agent) Steven Patrick. Steven will share a program on the Fishes of the Soque. It would be hard to find anyone who knows more about the Soque's native fish community. Steven has a whole lot of time on (and in) the river, and has been leading efforts to study aquatic life in our watershed. You will learn about the diversity of species in the Soque, and also about collaborative efforts to document that diversity and engage in projects to ensure healthy fisheries for generations to come.
We will have a brief business meeting before the program for members to vote on our Board of Directors and 2017 officer slate. Refreshments will be served. You do not have to be a member of SRWA to attend the meeting. Please join us and bring a friend!
