Show a little love for your local watershed

MANISSTEE –The public is invited to attend a special  League of Women Voters (LWV) Manistee County program from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Feb. 14 at the Munson Manistee Hospital Education Center, Rm. 1, when the League continues with the focus on water issues.

League member, Mary Reed, chair of the Portage Lake Watershed Forever Organization, will present a program called “Watersheds.” It will deal with what is a watershed and a watershed management plan? What do members of a watershed do? Why should you care about watersheds?

Mary will be joined by Emily Cook, outreach specialist for the Northwest Invasive Species Network. Mary and Emily will make learning about watersheds fun by playing a game of “Watershed Jeopardy”….there might even be some prizes.

The LWV was founded February 14, 1920, 99 years ago. To honor of this milestone anniversary the Manistee League will be serving some cake along with the usual light refreshments.

The LWV is a non-partisan, independent, grassroots organization made up of men and women, Republicans, Democrats, and Independents who encourage informed and active participation in government at all levels. The LWV works to increase understanding of major public policy issues and influences public policy through education and advocacy
