LNWC to host annual BBQ recognizing volunteers and accomplishments, Sept. 16

The Lower Nehalem Watershed Council (LNWC) invites council members, partners, friends, and the public to join them at their annual BBQ to recognize their volunteers and celebrate the Council’s accomplishments. The Council is dedicated to the protection, preservation and enhancement of the Nehalem Watershed through leadership, cooperation, and education. Since 1998, volunteers from the local area have worked diligently to promote the mission of the Council, protect and restore habitat for fish and wildlife, and provide a forum for community members to be involved in local conservation efforts. The annual BBQ is a chance for everyone to celebrate the accomplishments of the Council, to thank our volunteers, and to look forward to more exciting restoration work.

LNWC’s annual BBQ is a great opportunity to learn more about the Council and meet the Board of Directors. Festivities will be held on Saturday, Sept. 16 from 4:00 P.M. to 6:00 P.M. at Nehalem City Park, 12705 Hugo Street, Nehalem, OR, 97131. The Council will be providing food and beverages.
