Note to Stakeholders for the Tay Watershed

Dear Stakeholder for the Tay Watershed:

This is to provide early notice of a meeting of stakeholders of the Tay Watershed Management Plan, scheduled to take place on Tuesday, May 6, 2008.

We appreciate the support and interest that your organisation has shown in the past both in the development of the Management Plan and in tracking its progress since it was published in 2002. The objective of this meeting will be to review the status of the watershed and its resources - and, if necessary, make recommendations for any needed changes to update the Plan.

To this end, we will be back in contact with you prior to the meeting to ask for a brief overview of recent watershed-related activities and any plans for the future. This will provide the basis for discussion on progress on the Plan, including significant issues affecting the watershed, and the coordination of efforts and interests in meeting these. Stakeholders will also have the opportunity to propose updates or amendments to the Plan.

As in the past, we will also have a presentation on a current subject of concern or interest in the region. We have candidates in mind for this topic, but would welcome any suggestions you might wish to provide. We will also be outlining several new programs to be unveiled this year. An agenda follows.

The Tay Watershed Management Plan may be accessed on line through a link on the FoTW website at .

Please mark your calendar and plan to attend and feel free to suggest any items for the agenda.

Yours truly,


David Taylor                                         Lynn Preston
