he autumnal equinox will be
right around the corner when
you receive this newsletter,
when the days and nights are the
same length and time seems to stand
still. The equinox is a great time to
stand still and think back over the
past few months, and for me that
means thinking about the iWalk the
Eno Science and Nature summer
day camp. Six months ago, around
the time of the vernal equinox, we
*official iWalk the Eno chant
were well into planning our second
year of the iWalk the Eno program,
including hiring teachers and mentors, reviewing student applications,
arranging meals and transportation,
and much more.
In 2008 we received funding
for the iWalk the Eno camp from
the Science Student Enrichment
Program of the Burroughs Wellcome
Fund, in partnership with Orange
County Schools. We learned a lot
that first year, including just how
much goes into a summer camp with
sixty rising sixth-grade students,
fifteen staff, plus volunteers and
guest presenters traveling each day
to a new location on the Eno River.

f you were at the Festival for the Eno on the 4th of July you may have heard
Keith Nealson, the new Superintendent of the Eno River State Park, singing
a song he wrote about the Eno. The song debuted during the iWalk the Eno
summer camp and we were so thrilled we asked him to sing it at the Festival.
The mission of the Eno River Association is
to conserve and protect the nature, culture,
and history of the Eno River basin.

Have you ever given thought to where the water
that you drink comes from? Comes From…
And do you even have a clue of exactly what you’d do
if you did not have the water that you do?
Sometimes the water bubbles up from below
Sometimes it falls as the rain and snow
But an awful lotta water that we need to share
Comes from the river that is right over there.
And I love the Eno…and the Eno…loves me
Yes I love the Eno…and the Eno…loves me
The river is a place where the animals meet
Where the turtles swim and the herons eat
And if you didn’t have a river what would the fishes do?
They cannot move into your house with you.
The river is a place that the plants all know
Where the sycamores and the birches grow
Where the panhandle pebble snail meets his match
And the Neuse river water dog plays catch.
The river is a resource we need to share
Help keep it clean just to show we care
And if we take care of the river like we ought to do
Then the river will take care of us too.

We made some changes this year,
most significantly the decision to stay
at one location for most of the week.
Spending time in one section of the
river (the Few’s Ford access area of
the Eno River State Park) allowed
the students and staff to develop a
deeper connection with the river by
returning to the same place each day,
something that didn’t happen in the
first year of the traveling camp program. We did travel downriver for one
day this year to go on a canoe trip and tour the historic
mill at West Point on the Eno in Durham.
The iWalk campers spent a week in the out-of-doors
getting dirty and wet; they made new friends and met some
of the teachers who will be at their middle schools this fall;
they hiked along the trails of the Eno and paddled happily through the gently flowing water at West Point. There
were arts and crafts, songs and skits, and they learned about
science and nature through hands-on exploration. But
perhaps most importantly, they had a chance to experience
the treasure that is right in our own backyards—the Eno
River—a place
they can come
back to again,
and again.

Eno Stewardship 2009: “Best Year Ever”
Lesley Starke
dmittedly, summer is not the most active time for
stewardship here at the Association. Given the heat and
humidity and the presence of a little thing called the
Festival for the Eno, we often find time to pause in July and
August and evaluate what we have accomplished and what needs
to be done. Luckily, the first half of our stewardship year was
highly productive, making our mini-siesta a well deserved break
for staff and volunteers.
What exactly was accomplished? First off, with the assistance
of Will Murray, a soon-to-be Eagle Scout with Troop 820 in
Chapel Hill, and numerous Eno volunteers, we were able to
complete a nature trail on our Old Oxford Nature Preserve. In
addition, as mentioned in the summer edition of Currents, we were
able to rid our Blue Indigo Slopes Nature Preserve of Chinese privet.
Other invasive species removal projects have also seen a great deal of
progress, including tree-of-heaven removal at the Confluence Natural
Area, Japanese stilt grass removal on our Stanley Road properties, and
privet removal up on the Flat River. If you add in the countless bags of
trash and recyclables as well as a couple thousand feet of barbed wire
removed from the Confluence, Blue Indigo Slopes, and Stanley Road
properties, it makes for a pretty darn good six months. A big thank
you has to be sent to the nearly 100 volunteers (who contributed over
300 volunteer hours) who have already helped make 2009 one of the
greatest stewardship years ever for the Association!
The plan for the rest of the year is to build and improve upon the
success of the first half. This fall we will be focusing on continuing

Reflections from the River
The Summer Intern Edition
Giovanna Allegretti
UNC Chapel Hill
Education Intern
Working with the ERA this summer was a real privilege. Watching these kids become informed of the existence of crayfish and
box turtles was so rewarding, and witnessing their exposure to
careers such as park ranger, soil scientist, or wildlife biologist
was reassuring. My experience has given me high hopes for the
next generation.
One thing I will always remember was a moment on the
river. The kids were having a blast searching for critters on the
river bottom. I was teaching a couple of kids how to use a kick
net, I lifted it out of the water to reveal a bunch of debris, and
as I pointed out the tiny mayflies and dragonfly larvae, a girl
smiled and said “and I thought that was just dirt!” A whole
new world, revealed!
Natalie Davis
Carolina Friends School
Festival Intern
Hi everyone, I’m one of
the summer interns at the
Eno River Association.
I’m the Festival intern, so
most of my summer was
spent helping Maddiey
and Greg plan and prepare for the 30th Annual
Festival for the Eno. Some
of the time we were in the
office, but we also spent a lot of time at West Point on the Eno,
getting the site ready for the Festival.
“I think [the Eno River] is a big part of the culture of the
Durham and Chapel Hill area, kind of a trademark of the counties.
The Eno and the Festival are great places for people to come and
gather and enjoy the natural world.” (from N&O, July 3, 2009)

Education Intern
Eli left for another summer camp almost immediately after finishing the iWalk the Eno camp in mid-June, and we haven’t heard
from him since! Knowing how much energy and enthusiasm he
brought to the iWalk camp we can only assume he has immersed
him self fully in anther great camp experience. Eli’s connection
with the iWalk campers was genuine, and combined playfulness
with a sensitive
eye and ear for
campers needing
some one-on-one
time. He shared
his extensive canoe and waterfront
experience with
all of us and we’re
sure anyone who
experienced his
goofy camp songs
will never be the
same again!
This has been a great
summer for me at the
Eno River Association. My various projects
included preparing for
accreditation, leading
workdays for the community, and hot days in the
field mapping rare and
invasive exotic plants. I
led one stewardship workday with ERA members who came out
to treat invasive exotic plants at the Confluence property on
Father’s Day. I was also able to engage Durham youth who
helped me clean up garbage and invasive plants across the watershed at our Stanley Road properties in June. I plan to continue
the stewardship work I began through the academic year so that
I can apply my experiences with the Eno River Association to
my graduate studies.
Reflections from the River is a regular column in the
Eno Currents quarterly newsletter, inviting new voices
and perspectives from people of all ages with a theme
of connection to the Eno River and surrounding land.

We are pleased to present the 39th Annual Eno River
Association calendar featuring Invertebrates of the Eno.
Each month you will learn about the many small life
forms such as dragonflies, butterflies, and moths found in
and around the Eno River. Featured on each page of the
calendar is a color photograph, information about habitat
and interesting facts, plus original artwork submitted by
local students during our calendar art contest this spring.
Enormous appreciations go out to Tom Driscoll, Eno
board member and chair of the calendar committee.
Thanks also to the volunteer photographers, writers,
and young artists who submitted their work for use in
the calendar.
The Eno River calendar inspires and reminds us every
day about the reasons we’ve been working to protect the
riverfor more than 40 years.
For a listing of local retail shops selling the 2010 Eno
calendar visit www.enoriver.org/calendar/calloc.htm or

or more than 40 years the Eno River Association
has worked throughout the Eno River watershed
to protect and preserve the natural beauty, water
quality, plant and wildlife habitats, and recreational
opportunities afforded by the Eno River and its tributaries.
Our work has been a community effort, and we are
proud of our membership and volunteer participation,
the partnerships we have created with state and local
governments and other conservation organizations, and
of our reputation for leadership. The national land trust
accreditation program recognizes land conservation
organizations that meet national quality standards
for protecting important natural places and working
lands forever. The Eno River Association is pleased to
announce that it is applying for national accreditation.
The Land Trust Accreditation Commission, an
independent program of the Land Trust Alliance,
conducts an extensive review of each applicant’s policies
and programs. The Board, staff, and committees of the
Association have spent the past year reviewing the
organization’s policies and procedures in preparation for
submitting our application, and we believe this process
has made the Association an even stronger organization.
The accreditation application process includes an
opportunity for public comment, which is now open. The
Commission invites public input, and accepts signed,
written comments on pending applications. Comments
must relate to how the Eno River Association complies
with national quality standards for the ethical and
technical operation of a land trust. A full list of these
standards can be found at www.landtrustaccreditation.
