TheBuncombe County Cooperative Extension Service announces a general education course on water quality. This 6-class series is modeled after the popular Master Gardener classes, but aimed at the aquatically inclined. The course will cover problems facing local streams and the solutions needed to slow and reverse stream degradation. The course is open to the public, but space is limited. There is a $30.00 registration fee to cover overhead costs.
The course consists of six three-hour classes and will be held Monday evenings from 6 to 9 pm at the Buncombe County Extension office at 94 Coxe Avenue in downtown Asheville. There is ample, free parking. The series runs September 26 – November 7 (skipping October 10). The topics and dates include:
|Class 1: September 26, 6:00 – 9:00 pm.
Class 2: October 3, 6:00 – 9:00 pm.
Class 3: October 17, 6:00 – 9:00 pm.
|Class 4: October 24, 6:00 – 9:00 pm.
Class 5: October 24, 6:00 – 9:00 pm.
Class 6: November 7, 6:00 – 9:00 pm.
This course is aimed at volunteers who are involved in citizen water monitoring, stream clean-ups, adopt-a-stream programs, or other water quality related activities, and landowners interested in protecting their property from stream degradation. Anyone interested in learning about water quality problems and solutions is welcome to attend.
