Pittsboro, NC - A Robeson Creek report to the Pittsboro community will be conducted by the Robeson Creek Watershed Council and the Chatham Extension Center of the North Carolina Cooperative Extension Service on Thursday night, April 23.

A social with refreshments and snacks will start at 6:30 pm. Council members, Town of Pittsboro, and stream restoration partners will be available to answer questions. Various exhibits displaying the work that has been completed, work that is still in progress, and work planned for the future will be available for viewing.
