Leaders, organizations and individuals  working to protect and restore the Severn River environment will meet to share information on objectives, successes, challenges and disappointments, plans, needs, and opportunities for collaboration. This invitation is directed to those whose interests are focused primarily on the Severn River and its watershed rather than on larger and/or different ones.

You are invited to participate, individually and/or on behalf of your organization.  This is a unique opportunity to improve collaboration among Severn River organizations, and to build enthusiasm among individuals who desire to take on more active roles in those organizations.

Daniel Mellin has kindly arranged a wonderful venue on the River.  It is guaranteed to inspire.  Please identify those who should be invited and pass this invitation on to them … Severn watershed groups and communities, motivated individuals, etc. 

An agenda is attached below, to be refined as we move toward 30 September.  Your ideas are welcome.

Leading organizations and individuals working to protect and restore important environmental attributes of the Severn River watershed, meet to share information in this suggested format:

  • Objectives
  • Successes
  • Challenges and disappointments
  • Plans, needs, and opportunities for collaboration with others attending.

There are dual purposes: better coordination among Severn River groups and building enthusiasm among individuals whether already involved or interested prospectively.
