Dear Dr. Ernest and Kentucky 319 Staff, It is my pleasure to write in support of the establishment of a Kentucky Institute for Watershed Management Support for the purpose of providing local private and public sector organizations "hands-on, practical products and services to promote the growth of local stakeholder associations committed to improving or maintaining healthy water quality and quantity in their watersheds. Over many years of experience, our organization has found that local watershed groups need ongoing support once they have been established. We have been privileged to work with a select group of partners who have provided these services as well as providing them ourselves and know that organizational development support and fundraising assistance in particular are appreciated as young groups start to build and grow on their own. With this proposal, the added layer of technical support at the state university level will be useful in translating local energy into work and ideas into restored streams. Here’s to you and the Cumberland too, Margo Farnsworth Margo Farnsworth, Senior Fellow Cumberland River Compact
