We all should be grateful to learn, that chapter member Derek Groff has stepped up to volunteer his time and knowledge, and to join our leadership team in the capacity of Education Committee Chair. In the months and years to come, Education, in close cooperation with the Conservation and Membership Committees, will take on the challenge of making our chapter’s cold water conservation efforts even more visible and worthy for the general public’s interest.
