Stakeholders’ Meeting Wed., Feb 22, 7-9 PM

Eyes of Paint Branch Stakeholders’ Meeting!

Eyes of Paint Branch is a local conservation group dedicated to preserving, protecting, and restoring the Paint Branch and its watershed. Paint Branch is best known as the home of the metropolitan Washington, D.C., area’s only long-term self-sustaining wild trout population, but it also hosts an incredible biological diversity and some of the most beautiful hiking trails in the area. Paint Branch is one of the main tributaries of the Anacostia watershed, which flows into the Potomac River and eventually the Chesapeake Bay. Our group was founded in 1994 and has an excellent reputation and a significant following.

There remains much to do to protect our unique watershed. As a first step we’re planning a stakeholders’ meeting for the evening of Wednesday, February 22. We’ll feature a presentation with lots of high-quality pictures from around the watershed to highlight the uniqueness and beauty of the Paint Branch streams, wetlands, and forests. Come hear about our future activities, such as tree plantings, stream walks, newsletters, and web site updates. We’ll also solicit input from the community on what you would like to do and what issues you want addressed.

Join us and see what Eyes of Paint Branch is all about!
