Make the Mill Creek great again! The Council was grateful to engage over 150 combined attendees to the four charrettes held across the watershed. These meetings were designed to collect feedback from communities, businesses, residents and other entities within the Mill Creek Watershed. The participants were asked to report their ideas about Mill Creek-related issues, opportunities and actions. The information gleaned during these charrettes will be used to guide the Mill Creek Strategic Plan update.
The Council welcomed 26 hikers to the West Fork Mill Creek Walk on Saturday, February 7. We had a beautiful and unseasonably warm day to stroll along the stream. The walk was held in Wyoming at North Field Park and along parts of the hike/bike trail. Brian Kwiatkowski, ecologist and Chair of Wyoming’s Environmental Stewardship Commission, was our guide. Brian taught us about the West Fork Mill Creek Restoration Project and the importance of invasive plant eradication and native riparian buffer restoration.
As responsible fiscal stewards, we operate on a lean budget with streamlined staff to maximize benefits to our members and improvement in the Mill Creek Watershed. Your financial contribution helps us better serve you and achieve results that further our efforts to be a responsible steward of the Mill Creek.
