Projects Update

There are a few Headwaters events coming up this month.

March 14th:

We are having a water-testing training workshop for volunteers this Saturday. We are meeting at 9:00 in the morning in front of the Harry Caudill Library in Whitesburg. This training is required for volunteers to participate in water-testing events with The Head of Three Rivers Project. Please register at and click on the “register for volunteer training here” link.

March 21st:

The Head of Three Rivers Project, in conjunction with the Appalachian Regional Reforestation Initiative, is organizing a large tree-planting project on top of an abandoned strip mine on March 21st. This event is a pilot project that showcases reforestation techniques that could be used on the 741,000 acres of similar land across Appalachia. We will be meeting in the morning at the Campbell’s Branch Community Center (where out-of-town volunteers will be able to stay). This will be an all-day event in which food will be provided. More details will be provided soon.

March 28th:

There will be a Carcassonne Arbor Day Celebration on the same site as the tree-planting. There will be an exciting line-up of speakers from several different organizations including the American Chestnut Foundation and the United Nations Environment Programme. More details on this event will also be provided soon.

If you have any questions about any of these events, please call (606-634-8669) or email me (
