In 2009 35 people came together to found the Buckingham Pond Conservancy. Since then we've grown in size and capacity - coordinating clean ups, hosting social events, finding grants to help the pond, building relationships with City staff, sampling the pond's water, installing 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:
Fourth Annual Meeting
Buckingham Pond Conservancy
Sunday March 10
1:00 - 2:30 PM
Bethany Reformed Church
760 New Scotland Avenue (Corner of Lenox Avenue)
Scott Kisbaugh, Lakes Monitoring and Assessment Section Chief from the NYS Dept of Environmental Conservation will be with us to help us understand the findings from our summer's work collecting water samples from the pond.
We will also be voting to elect new Board Members and amend the bylaws. (Want to be a new board member? Read on!) Anyone is welcome to attend the meeting, but only members can vote. Membership is $5 per year per adult, and we're happy to take your membership contribution at the door.
We are seeking two energetic folks who love the pond to consider a two year term as a board member. If you are interested in finding out more about being a board member, contact us no later than Friday 2/22 at email@example.com.
Have an hour to help the pond?
We hope to find enough volunteers to flyer the neighborhood around the pond to make sure word gets out about the meeting. If you can help distribute flyers door to door, please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org Even an hour of your time would help!
