Annual Meeting Planned at YDWP’s Latest Land Acquisition

The Yellow Dog Watershed Preserve would like to invite all of our members and non-members to join us for a celebration of 17 years of community service and freshwater protection that the group has offered. The 17th Annual Meeting is a chance for people to meet the Board of Directors, staff members, and other supporters. This year we are excited to hold the event at our newest land acquisition near the McCormick Wilderness Area. YDWP purchased 40 acres last fall in order to protect the fragile ecosystems of the watershed and ensure access is preserved to the McCormick Wilderness Area. Below is a schedule of events:
