President's Letter - February

One of the important conservation programs UCCTU sponsors is Adopt-a-Stream - the process of monitoring water in tributaries of the Chattahoochee River below Buford Dam.  Information gathered by certified volunteers is reported to the Georgia Environmental Protection Division to help alert them to issues that warrant remediation or other action.


UCCTU's Adopt-a-Stream Program is led by Bill Lott, who along with Bob Schmitt has become certified to lead volunteer certification training sessions.  I am pleased to announce that Bill's exceptional leadership of this program has earned him recognition by the Georgia Adopt-a-Stream Program as the recipient of the 2015 Outstanding Partnership and Outreach Award.  Congratulations to Bill for a well-deserved honor!


Spring is a busy time for UCCTU, and this year is no exception.  Please check our calendar for volunteer opportunities beginning this Saturday, Feb 20 with Tie-One-On at Bass Pro Shop and extending to Boy Scout events in March.  Please don't hesitate to contact any of the officers to discuss your interest in volunteering for any of these events.
