The Golden Valley Historical Society will present a two-part series on Bassett Creek this month and next. The first presentation, Reforming our Relationship with the Bassett Creek Watershed: A History, will be held Thu, Oct 13, 7 pm at the Society’s Historic Church (6731 Golden Valley Rd) by Laura Jester, Administrator of the Bassett Creek Watershed Management Commission (BCWMC).
Jester will speak about the history of restorative efforts for the Bassett Creek Watershed, as well provide insights into how and why watersheds like Bassett Creek, whose Dakota name is Haha Wakpadaŋ, deteriorated after European settlers began to use it. A question-and-answer session will follow.
The program is free and open to all. Learn more on the GVHS website.
