Your Network News

March 2018 Newsletter

Wherever you are within the Basin, we hope you've stayed safe and dry during these weeks of wet weather. We've witnessed a glimmer of Spring here in western North Carolina. Makes us think of the warmer weather down the road where many of you will move your office from indoors to outside to further our shared commitment to the Basin's aquatic and human life. What changes within your freshwater ecosystem might be happening in preparation for the warmer seasons?
 
The  mission of the Tennessee River Basin Network is to inspire and empower the people of the Tennessee River Basin to effectively steward the region's aquatic biodiversity.
Sicklefin Redhorse Annual Meeting

The Sicklefin Redhorse Conservation Committee was formed due to a Candidate Conservation Agreement (CCA), a voluntary agreement between the USFWS and partners that identifies proactive conservation efforts before the species needs full protection of the Endangered Species Act. The committee convenes annually and develops consensus recommendations to the CCA Management Board that guides the design and implementation of conservation actions and management strategies. The group held their annual meeting this past January where members provided updates and presentations related to Sicklefin Redhorse monitoring and conservation efforts throughout the six counties the species exists. Visit sicklefin.org to learn more about this collaborative group.
