CBF Educator Lends a Hand to The Downstream Project

CBF's Allan Thomson, assistant manager for our Virginia Watershed Education Program (VWEP), devoted three days to lend his expertise to The Downstream Project.

The Downstream Project is a non-profit organization founded to inspire individuals and groups to initiate solutions to ecological issues that threaten their communities. The program believes in fair, open and responsible communication on relevant topics that will foster alliances toward a sustainable future.

Both Allan and Pat Calvert, VWEP Manager, frequently devote their spare time to assist other local groups, and are wonderful ambassadors for CBF in the Shenandoah region. Allan was previously featured in the documentary 'Shenandoah Voices', and continues to foster important community relationships "in the valley."

Here's a video of Allan in action with The Downstream Project earlier this month.
