The KRWC is governed by a Board of Directors. The Board meets monthly throughout the year and presently includes members of diverse professional backgrounds, several of whom contribute technical and scientific expertise. We strive to include board members that live in and represent various parts of the watershed. Our meetings are open to the public and typically take place on the third Monday of each month. Check the calendar for our next meeting date.
