The Parks Department Natural Resources Group will hold a meeting this month to present recommendations for protecting the water and ecological resources of the Alley Creek Watershed. The NRG plans to address the current conditions of the watershed, assess the major threats to the area, and take input from community members and community groups on their priorities for the waterway. This meeting is part of a long-term control plan to better understand the impacts on wa­ter quality and related recreational uses within Alley Creek and Little Neck Bay.
