Don Richardson

Saturday, July 20th, was the third Saturday-of-the-month nature activity at South Fork, where Don Richardson and Ed Wood led a walk and discussed how important it is to be aware of the watershed you live in and how your lifestyle can affect it.

We ALL live in a watershed. You might not be able to see a lake, river or ocean from your home, but the land you live on does shed water. We talked about the watersheds that the participants came from. Some were from the South Fork of the Little Red River watershed and some were from the Cadron Creek watershed. Each participant received a pamphlet with suggestions of things they as individuals can do in their own watershed. At the end of the walk, we discussed the priorities of the local Conservation District over the next year concentrating on the South Fork of the Little Red River.
