Come hear what's new on the creek and share your ideas
Friends of Starkweather Creek
Our Annual Meeting is on Thursday!
It's time for the Friends of Starkweather Creek's Annual Meeting! Join us this Thursday, November 7th, at the Goodman Community Center's Brassworks building.
We hope you can come meet your neighbors, watch a presentation about what we did this year, learn what's new on the creek (including NEW access points), elect new board members, and share your ideas. JoJo O'Brien from City of Madison Engineering will talk about the new boat launches and other work around the creek.
The event is also a social gathering, with snacks and a chance to meet other people who care about the creek. We're stronger together, so we hope you can come! Children welcome.
