Watershed Engagement in the Bluegrass

Bluegrass Greensource held the second successful Hinkston Creek and Dix River Watershed Group Stakeholder Meetings virtually this November. In these days of virtual everything, it was wonderful to have a group of 20+ individuals at each meeting engaging in ways to make our waterways cleaner. Our stakeholder groups meet once or twice a year to update participants and citizens on happenings in the watersheds. Meetings are an opportunity to work through new ideas to improve water quality and raise awareness across the watersheds and surrounding areas. In the coming years, these stakeholder groups will have an opportunity to develop and implement mini watershed projects utilizing Water Quality Mini Grants as seed money through Bluegrass Greensource. This is funded in part by a grant from the US EPA under 319 of the Clean Water Act.  People interested in participating in these groups or learning more can email our Watershed Coordinator, Lindsie Nicholas, anytime at lindsie@bggreensource.org.
