The South Llano Watershed Alliance (SLWA) will hold its quarterly meeting this Saturday, May 30th at the Texas Tech Center Dining Hall in Junction. The meeting, which runs from 9:30 until 12:30, will offer attendees an opportunity to learn more about recent legislative actions and policy issues affecting the Llano and James River.
The SLWA is a recently- formed group of local landowners and interested parties whose mission is “to preserve and enhance the South Llano River and adjoining watersheds by encouraging land and water stewardship through collaboration, education, and community participation.”
Donnie Coleman, a local attorney who is volunteering to help the Alliance seek tax-exempt status, says she is encouraged by the progress the group has made. “We have already received non-profit recognition from the Texas Secretary of State and will be submitting the paperwork for IRS tax-exempt status following this upcoming meeting”, Coleman said.
During Saturday’s meeting, the new Board of Director’s will be announced and group discussions will focus on upcoming activities and projects for the Alliance. Anyone interested in the efforts of the SLWA is invited to attend.
