MAYVILLE - Webb's Captains Table in Mayville will be the location for the Chautauqua Watershed Conservancy's annual meeting and dinner celebration on Sunday, July 29.
This year's featured speaker will be Elizabeth Moran, Ph.D., President of Ecologic, LLC, who will give a presentation on managing watersheds to control plant and algae growth and the county's dredging feasibility study underway this summer on Chautauqua Lake.

She has designed and implemented complex water quality and biological monitoring programs to characterize reservoirs, lakes, streams, rivers and estuaries. Much of her experience has been directed at defining the interrelationships between land uses, point and non-point sources of pollution, water quality standards and the ecological integrity of surface waters. Dr. Moran has also served two terms as Cazenovia Town Supervisor, was formerly a member of the Madison County Board of Supervisors and is presently a Cazenovia Town Council member.
CWC members, municipal officials and the general public are invited to attend the annual meeting at a cost of $40 per person for a buffet style dinner. A welcoming reception with hors d'oeuvres and a cash bar will begin at 4:45 p.m., followed by the annual meeting at 5:30 p.m. To make a reservation, mail a check made payable to the CWC to the Conservancy at 413 North Main Street in Jamestown or call 664-2166 to pay by credit card.
