Sound Reflections:
Celebrating APNEP's 30th Anniversary

Telling the Albemarle-Pamlico National Estuary Partnership Story

The United States Congress designated the Albemarle-Pamlico estuarine system an "estuary of national significance" in 1987. That same year, the Albemarle-Pamlico Estuarine Study (APES) was among the first of 28 National Estuary Programs established by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) through amendments to the Clean Water Act. To help commemorate our 30th Anniversary, we are highlighting the history of APNEP by featuring our partners - past and present - throughout 2017.

October 16th, 2017 -- Did you know that North Carolina's Soil and Water Conservation Districts were founded in part because of the Dust Bowl? The hard work of one North Carolinian named Dr. Hugh H. Bennett brought attention to the importance of soil conservation and helped initiate a focus on sustainable agricultural practices that still bear fruit today.
