As we wrap up another active year at the Riley Purgatory Bluff Creek Watershed District, we reflect on what we’ve accomplished.
Welcome to summer. You may have noticed already that any rebound we got on lake levels and stream levels from this winter's near record snow accumulation has disappeared.
This June marks the 50th anniversary of the first World Environment Day. Over those 50 years, RPBCWD has made significant improvements to the water resources in our 50 square mile corner of the world.
The RPBCWD is half-way through our ten-year plan and has made considerable progress.
Another busy year at RPBCWD and, in many ways, a normal year following the contortions needed to deal with the pandemic years.
What a summer it has been! This year saw substantial completion of several projects, including a seven-acre wetland restoration near Pioneer Trail.
Ah, spring. The time of year we emerge from our homes excited about the season ahead and the projects we want to get to work on. This is true with all of us at RPBCWD too.
Well, we made it. Months and years blur together, but we all still did what we needed. Throughout all of this, some great things have happened.
There have been quite a few changes around the office lately, but we've been hard at work. Catch up with what the District has been up to this year!
As this tumultuous year comes to a close, we are reflecting on the great work that RPBCWD was able to accomplish alongside our many amazing partners.
This summer has been unique for all of us, and we have been fortunate to be able to continue many of our operations socially distanced and online.
These last few months have been a big change for everyone. Read the District's updated Covid-19 response.
As winter changes to spring, the District is preparing for a busy field season. Snowmelt will bring more water to local creeks.
2019 was an exciting year for the District! Throughout the year, we celebrated our 50th anniversary with a series of opportunities for our community to explore and celebrate local water resources.
As late fall has truly settled in, the District has also seen some change. We are wrapping up our regular field season and taking in much of our monitoring equipment.
We are nearly halfway through our year of 50th anniversary celebrations, and we've had a wonderful time snowshoeing, hiking, and learning with our community so far this year! Over the next few months, there's a lot more to do.
