    Chatham families and businesses were invited to Central Carolina Community College - Pittsboro Campus on April 30th from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm for a unique event to have some fun and learn about all the fantastic options we have to reduce, reuse, recycle, compost, and properly dispose of items in the county. Information was shared on the many litter prevention and clean-up initiatives taking place and ways to get involved. The event included exhibits, demonstrations, speakers, children’s activities, food and more. A paper shredding service was offered to help residents destroy and recycle private documents safely and securely. Can Guy, Dottie Bottle & Beauty-Fly made a special appearance!
    Speakers addressed questions like…What happens to the things we throw away and who pays? How many local jobs are supported when people choose to reuse, recycle, or compost stuff instead of throwing it away? How can we reduce the amount of waste we generate and the costs associated with disposal? What types of disposal are safe, and legal? Who in our community really needs our unwanted stuff or hard to recycle items, and would love to collect it before we toss it in the trash?

    "Through Their Lens: Chatham County" Photo Exhibit 2012 - 2013
    After a successful debut at the NC Arts Incubator PAF Gallery in Siler City, our photo exhibit was on display at Galloway Ridge in Pittsboro and the Central Carolina Community College campus in Siler City.
    Chatham Conservation Partnership sponsored this photography exhibition as a way to raise awareness and appreciation for conservation efforts and the value of Chatham County's natural resources. Opening night reception for "Through Their Lens: Chatham County" was during Siler City's Third Friday Artwalk on August 17th from 6:00 to 9:00 PM. Many thanks to our volunteer installation team for setting up the exhibit at the NC Arts Incubator PAF Gallery in Siler City: David Blevins, Susan Kelemen, Judy Pick, Anna and Keith Readling, Simon and Gretchen Smith. See David's photo of the volunteer team on our Flickr site: Install Team Photo
    The exhibit was composed of 60 images created between April 21 and June 16, 2012 by participants of a photography workshop conducted by David Blevins, co-author of Wild North Carolina. Blevins is an award winning freelance nature photographer and forest ecologist. His third book, Wild North Carolina, is an introduction to the diversity and significance of North Carolina's natural communities. The exhibition was a collaboration, not a competition, among 23 local photographers of all skill levels. Images in the exhibit include landscapes, plants, and wildlife. Some participants explored countywide to find subject matter for their images, while others found their subject right in their own backyard. The diversity of the participants and their subjects illustrates the diversity of Chatham's natural resources.

    The CCP has been holding quarterly meetings for the past 11 years on conservation and environmental topics and has provided a place for resource professionals and community members to learn and share ideas regarding the County’s most pressing environmental issues. The CCP led the effort to create the Comprehensive Conservation Plan for Chatham County that has been used in several other planning projects in the county, including Pittsboro, Siler City/Love’s Creek, and now the county’s Comprehensive Land Use Plan update.
    The CCP is a volunteer-led organization and quarterly meetings are open to anyone who has an interest in Chatham County’s natural resources. The mission of the CCP is to develop and implement strategies for a community conservation vision that builds awareness, protection and stewardship of Chatham County’s natural resources.
