|President||David LaRoche, Attorney||615 896-7060 SRWA@StonesWatershed.org|
|I grew up on the Stones River, and have many fond memories of hunting for crawdads & musket balls. Still a Murfreesboro resident, I have a law practice on Main Street specializing in estate planning and administration. My wife, Brook, and I are active community volunteers. I sit on the board of several local charities.|
|Vice President||Cynthia Allen||VicePresident@StonesWatershed.org|
|I am passionate about the environment and enjoy conducting education and outreach within the community during various events and recreational opportunities. I encourage citizens to experience and discover local waterways, and to take action with protection measures that support clean, healthy streams and diverse wildlife.|
|Secretary||Mayo Taylor||Secretary@StonesWatershed.org, Mayo@StonesWatershed.org|
|I was co-founder of SRWA in 2003 and have served on the Executive Committee for most of the last nine years. My interests are in preserving water quality and providing safe and legal public access to our rivers for fishing, swimming and paddling.||Treasurer||Neal Appelbaum||615 563-3276|
|Living on a headwaters branch of the East Fork of the Stones River in Cannon County, I get up each day appreciative of the waters and wild lands of middle-TN.
I work for their preservation.
|Membership||Amanda Moore||Membership@StonesWatershed.org, News@StonesWatershed.org|
|In my former life in Kentucky, I practiced environmental law and chaired the Licking River Watershed Watch, a citizen water-monitoring project. Now a resident of Murfreesboro, I work as a legal editor and spend as much time as possible getting my children outdoors.|
|Randal Branch||I am currently in private practice as a Licensed Professional Counselor doing business as Cedars Counseling. I am a life member of Tennessee Scenic Rivers Association serving on the River Access Committee. I promote the GLOBE and IMRivers programs as well as Boat Day, First Saturday paddles, and Blueways development.|
|Bonnie Ervine||I have a B.S. in Biology, Earth Science and a natural curiosity of the world around. I work as the Environmental Education Coordinator at Discovery Center (the children’s museum in Murfreesboro) and teacher workshop facilitator for Project WET, Project Growing Up WILD, Project Flying WILD, Project Learning Tree and Early Childhood Project Learning Tree. These curriculums provide activities for teachers of all grade levels with water being an important focus. Storm water and watershed education is an additional personal and professional interest!|
|Jonah Tully||I live in the woods near the headwaters of the Stones River.|
|Greg Upham||As the Town of Smyrna Storm’s Water Management Coordinator I ensure that the town complies with all federal and state (NPDES) storm water permit requirements, including, but not limited to, public education and participation, illicit discharge elimination, oversight of all construction, detention basin, and municipal activities, as well as program management. Knowing these are all difficult tasks for our small staff as well as knowing I have water quality expertise that could be useful to a citizen-based group, I have gladly joined forces with the Stones River Watershed Association in an effort to address our communities’ water quality needs.|
|Josh Upham||I obtained my B.S. in Geoscience from Middle Tennessee State University where I was involved in geology and geography research in addition to interning for TDEC’s Water Pollution Control. I have worked in a local Storm water program for the last 6 years maintaining a GIS database, organizing stream assessment and sampling programs, and helping with research projects to help restore water quality in the Stones River Watershed where I have spent much of my life enjoying its waters.|
|Ken Gendrich||I have an M.S. in Healthcare Informatics and spend most days as a steward of patient health care records at the HCA Healthcare Network. On selected evenings and weekends I spend time sheparding the Stones River Watershed with other volunteers. You can spot me on the river at Boat Days and monthly paddles where I enjoy introducing new friends to boating and an occasional river cleanup. I’m also a lifetime member of the TSRA. While my days of Class V water and running small waterfalls are mostly history, I can still be found escaping town to enjoy rivers, trails and camping across Tennessee with my family and friends.||Webmaster@StonesWatershed.org|
