Neches River Designation To Be Discussed

There will be an informational meeting in Beaumont this coming Monday July 27th in regard to the possible designation of the Neches River as a federally protected Wild and Scenic River. Anyone interested in what it would mean for the area if the Neches receives the designation is welcome to attend. Attila Bality of the National Park Service and Deborah Caffin of the U.S. Forest Service will be speaking on the matter and will take questions from audience members.

The meeting will be held at 6:00pm at the Dishman Art Museum located at 1020 E. Lavaca on the Lamar University campus. The museum is located just off MLK Drive.

  1. The Neches is thought to be a possible holdout for the Ivory-billed Woodpecker. See Figure F-1 in the USFWS "Recovery Plan For the Ivory-billed Woodpecker."
