Mike Wilson reported that the date has been set for the Blair Mill  Elementary School Watershed Day.  It will be held on Saturday, May 1. 
Work will be done on the wetlands that was created.  Shrubs and bushes will be placed.  There will also be 80 trees which will be planted by
parents of the children.  During the day the kids will collect insects from the stream in order to learn how clean their stream is.  There will
be a rain barrel workshop and a rain garden demonstration.

 In order to avoid the confusion of last year, the Rotary fishing day  will be held the week before the Watershed Day on April 24th.  Mike also
reported that the Thompsons are looking for us to repair the trees that have been damaged by deer and weather on their property.  These are
trees that we previously planted.

Since the speaker could not make it tonight, there will be a round table discussion following the break.

Meeting adjourned.
