Friends of the Lower Greenbrier River (FOLGR) has completed the Know Your Watersheds Program.

Eastern Greenbrier Middle School’s 7th grade science classes explored proper water monitoring techniques and macroinvertebrate identification through the program. The students also examined the differences between point and non-point source pollution, and the differing impacts of pervious and impervious surfaces in our watershed. The program culminated in a dogwood tree planting on the school property. A sincere thank you to the Chesapeake Bay Trust, who sponsored the program, and EGMS science teachers Mrs. Hancock and Mr. Dick for making the program possible.

FOLGR will continue to provide watershed programming at the Greenbrier Interpretive Center in Alderson over the summer, and is always open to new venues and partners for its education programs. Contact info@lowergreenbrierriver.org for more information.
