DRBA Annual Celebration

Join us for DRBA’s Annual Celebration!

Free and open to the public, the event will kick-off with food and refreshments and a special presentation by guest speaker Spencer Tassone, Ph.D. candidate at UVA, who will talk about his exciting research related to disturbances, extreme events, and resilience in freshwater aquatic ecosystems and its relevance to the rivers and streams in the Dan River Basin. 

After the keynote, writer and composer Angela Daniel-Upchurch will give a performance of her song, “Song of the Dan.”

The event will also include interactive environmental displays, DRBA items for sale, annual Volunteer Awards, recognition of retiring board members and an update on DRBA’s projects and activities planned for 2023.

The event will end with a ribbon-cutting of the new 2.5 mile trail constructed by DRBA on the Patrick & Henry Community College Campus at 11:30am.

Guests are welcome to then pack a bag lunch and eat on the patio overlooking the Beaver Creek Reservoir or visit a local restaurant.

Guests are invited to come back to the event venue for a First Saturday Outing with a guided hike on the new trail. Learn more about FSO.

Please let us know you’re coming!  Registration is encouraged, but not required.
