Thursday, February 28, 2008

WINONA -- The Scenic Rivers Watershed Partnership will meet March 5 at the Twin Pines Conservation Education Center in Winona.

The partnership was formed several years ago to protect the watersheds of the Eleven Point, Jacks Fork and Current Rivers.

Counties involved in the watershed includes Oregon, Howell, Shannon, Ripley, Carter, Reynolds, Texas and Dent.

Oregon County Presiding Commissioner Leo Warren serves as chairman of the watershed board of directors.

Warren said the meeting topic will be the annual state-of-the-state report.

Warren said there are four scheduled speakers for the day. They are Paul Strong, acting forest supervisor for the Mark Twain National Forest; John Hoskins, director of the Missouri Department of Conservation, Rob Morrison, director of the Water Pollution Control Branch of the Missouri Department of Natural Resources; and Russ Runge, acting superintendent of the Ozark National Scenic Riverways.

The commissioner said an opportunity for questions and answers will be allowed.

Warren said the Scenic Riverways Board of Directors will meet following the meeting.

The program is scheduled to start at 1 p.m.
