MAYVILLE — The Chautauqua Watershed Conservancy will highlight the organization’s 2017-18 accomplishments and outline its goals for 2018-19 watershed improvements during its annual meeting, “A Clear Vision for Clear Water,” at 4:30 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 4, at Webb’s Captain’s Table Restaurant in Mayville.

In addition to annual business and a presentation by CWC Executive Director John Jablonski, the meeting will include a presentation by SUNY professor and CWC board member Alberto E. Rey on “Art as the Convergence of Science, Conservation and Community Service.” Rey, a nationally renowned artist, will discuss his work and his latest project, a book and national art tour titled the “Extinct Birds Project.”

The project is based on perfectly preserved samples of extinct birds uncovered in the archives of the Roger Tory Peterson Institute.

Meeting attendance is $50 and will include a buffet dinner and a cash bar. Those interested in attending can RSVP by Aug. 1 by calling the Chautauqua Watershed Conservancy at 664-2166.
