Dear Friends:

What a night!  Over 150 honorees, community and business representatives, and friends and family of all ages celebrated this year's clean water progress within our watershed at our annual Watershed Milestones Award Ceremony & Reception.  We were so pleased to honor 14 extraordinary individuals and organizations who are making a difference in their communities through their environmental stewardship. 

A huge thank our Partner Alliance members! This event and the work we do all year long would not be possible without their continuous support.
