The April Chatham Conservation Partnership (CCP) meeting will focus on Aquatic Ecosystem Conservation: Priority Species from NCWRC and USFWS. The webinar will be on Thursday April 20 from 9:00-11:30 a.m..

Did you know Chatham County’s streams and rivers are home to rare, threatened, and endangered species? Join us to learn more about the species and their important role in the ecosystem. Learn how threats, such as water pollution and development impact their habitats, and what conservationists are doing to protect them. We have aquatic ecologists from the NC Wildlife Resources Commission and the US Fish and Wildlife Service providing presentations.
