Open invite

Dear Mayor Bell and Durham City Council Members,

We would like to invite you to participate in two Creek Week events.

The first is a clean up of the Ellerbe Creek Beaver Marsh from 9 to noon, this Saturday, March 20. This magical place is all too often the location of illegal dumping and has been the site of neighborhood clean ups since 2006. It is also one of the few sources of clean water flowing into Ellerbe Creek and thus into the Falls Lake.

The second event is a nature walk at this hidden gem at 6:00pm on Sunday, March 21. The Beaver Marsh is located behind Compare Foods and Big Lots. We will look for birds and beavers at this urban ecological treasure. I think you would be surprised by the beauty of this place.

Ellerbe Creek Watershed Association was highlighted as an Environmental Hero on WUNC-TV. Here is the seven minute video that appeared on North Carolina Now.

It was produced by UNC School of Journalism and Mass Communication's Medical and Science Journalism Program as well as WUNC-TV.

Hope to see you at the Beaver Marsh on Saturday and Sunday!

Ellerbe Creek Watershed Association
