Eventful Months for CWEP!

January and February have been very eventful months for CWEP! From Steering Committee meetings to Creek Week meetings to library, school, scout, STEM, and festival programs, CWEP has done it all- and we are on track to meet our goal of reaching all members before the end of June!

First, we had our quarterly Steering Committee Meeting on January 22, 2019, where we discussed program updates, direct education recaps, and reviewed our 5 year plan. In addition, CWEP recently added a new page to the website called “Steering Committee” where you can find all updated Agenda’s and Meeting Summaries! We want our partners and communities to be in the know at all times.

Secondly, our CWEP family has grown with the addition of a new Water Resource Planner who will be working closely with CWEP this year! Welcome to the team, Maya!

In addition to our successful committee meeting, CWEP also continues to participate in the monthly planning meetings pertaining to a week-long event in Durham called Creek Week. Creek Week is a time to discover and clean up local streams. It has been celebrated by Durham since 2009. It is a successful event in helping to rid trash from local creeks, as well as getting the community involved in their surrounding environment. This year, Creek Week is from March 16-23rd. Individuals can sign up for multiple events that occur during this week through this page: https://keepdurhambeautiful.org/creek-week/ CWEP has also added a new Creek Week page to the site which outlines all the creek weeks in North Carolina! CWEP will be hosting a “Canines for Clean Water” Dog Pledge event during Durham Creek Week 2019 on March 18th from 4-6 PM at Piney Wood Dog Park in Durham. Stop by with your four legged friend, sign a pledge promising to pick up dog waste, and get some treats- We hope to see you there!

CWEP has been doing a lot these past couple months- but we have even more eventful months coming up! Check out our new Calendar of Events page to see what we’re up to next! We also have a ton of new pictures out in the field that you can check out here!
