Most Everything You Wanted to Know about Watersheds with Rick Anderson (Thursday Night Nature May 19)
No matter where you are, you are in a watershed. What is a watershed, and why are they important? In this lecture, given by Rick Anderson, we will dive deeper into this topic, discuss watersheds as a whole and explore our local watershed. We will highlight challenges facing our watersheds and the environmental heroes tackling these issues. We will also cover how you can be a watershed warrior in your everyday life.
Rick Anderson has been a naturalist with the Preserve for 11 years offering a variety of guided walks from spring through fall. A dedicated member of the BHWP education committee, he has been a mentor to several interpretive naturalists. Rick has held a strong interest and involvement with nature from his early days as a Boy Scout in New Jersey and Florida. Following a long career as a rehabilitation counselor, Rick worked as a landscape/estate gardener in Seattle, WA and the VP of the Seattle chapter of the Washington State Nursery and Landscape Association. Rick is a certified master gardener and has been an active volunteer with the Master Watershed Steward program in Bucks County, PA.
