“Every year, the Watershed Committee gets a new Board Chair. This year, our Chair is Stuart Murr who, with his wife Katy, crossed the United States on their bicycles last spring and summer, towing their two young kids behind them. They rode from Florida to Oregon, on bikes, with their kids! Imagine! At the January meeting, Stuart recognized our outgoing Chair, Leslie Carrier. Leslie has worked for Drury University and has been very active with Springfield’s League of Women Voters. She successfully steered us into construction of the main education building at the Watershed Center, the most ambitious project ever undertaken by the Watershed Committee and quite possibly the biggest boost for locally based water education in history!”
