January Notes and Paddles

February Meeting
The next meeting will be held on Tuesday, February 1st, in the Tensaw Theater of the Five Rivers Delta Resource Center. Bob Strader, MBCKC member, is the volunteer conductor for this month's meeting. . Bob will present with a slide-show presentation of his recent paddle from Rice Creek to Bottle Creek (Indian Mounds). Immediately following, Dr. Gregory Waselkov, Professor of Anthropology/University of South Alabama, will speak on the Bottle Creek Indian Mounds.

January Meeting Notes
Nancy Milford was our first club member of the year to volunteer to coordinate and conduct January's meeting. What a great job she did! Leslie Lasister, Environmental Manager for the City of Foley, presented on Foley's Graham Creek Nature Preserve. The slide-show included photos of the canoe/kayak launch at the preserve as well as beautiful photos of the wildlife and abundant flora, some of which is rare, that can be seen in the area. Many club members left looking forward to paddling Graham Creek.

General Notes:
I am looking for volunteers to host/conduct the monthly meetings during this new year. Please contact me if you would like to 'be in charge' of a meeting next year. Tracy Lannie tracy@thelannies.us or 463-4233
