Annual Meeting: Sunday March 30 1:00 PM

The fifth annual meeting of the Buckingham Pond Conservancy will be held SUNDAY, March 30, 2014 from 1:00 to 3:00 pm. At our formation In 2009, 35 people came together to found the Buckingham Pond Conservancy. Since then we've grown in size and continue to coordinate clean ups, host social events, find grant opportunities, build relationships with City staff, sample the pond's water (3 years going on 4), installed storm drain medallions, and so much more.

Each year we come together just one time to celebrate our successes and revisit our priorities.  Be a part of it! Come to the:
