Environment Matters Lunch & Learn 

Columbia County Environmental and Stormwater departments along with Georgia Master Naturalist, Margaret Alligood, will host the next Environment Matters Lunch & Learn Wednesday, February 20th from 11:30 AM – 12:30 PM at Columbia County Library, Meeting Room B (7022 Evans Town Center Boulevard, Evans).  

Topics in February:
The February kick-off topic will be about Flooding.  Our Environmental Floodplain Manager, Connie Smith will guide us through many things to think about and give a demonstration on how to search for your property on a helpful website.  She will go over insightful tips that may help you when you act upon them in advance of a flood situation. 
Our February co-speaker will be Director of our Emergency Management Agency, Andy Leanza.  He will share his valuable EMA expertise and go over the important “CodeRED” emergency notification.  You will leave knowing how to sign up for it if you attend this meeting. 

There will be a few light refreshments and door prizes.  Come join us for an upbeat, casual informative meeting and meet some of the County employees that gladly serve your community. 
February will be the first of four sessions for 2019.  The sessions will run from February through May on the third Wednesdays.  From the surveys we conducted there were many positive comments on the “behind the scenes” presentations from County employees in various fields.  Our four sessions will be focused on you meeting various employees and somewhat of an open house to the Environmental and Stormwater Departments along with expertise from other Departments throughout the County.   Time allowing we will pick up again in the future with helpful Environmental civic groups and hope to partner once again with our great County Agent.  

There is no cost to attend.  Classes are for adults.  Please call the library to register 706.863.1946 extension 4 to reserve a seat. Registration is strongly encouraged, however we will welcome walk-ins.  

If you have any questions, email Georgia Naturalist, Margaret Alligood.
