DAUPHIN ISLAND WATERSHED MANAGEMENT PLAN
The DI Watershed Management Study is a process led by the Mobile Bay National Estuary Program to understand the condition of the watershed, and promote opportunites to ensure its long-term health. The Dauphin Island Watershed Study will take more than a year to complete and will focus on multiple factors, including water quality, public access, preservation of natural areas, and culture & heritage.
The following short survey is an opportunity to tell them what you think are Dauphin Island's greatest strengths, biggest challenges, potential opportunities, and looming threats and what role you think Dauphin Island plays in protecting the Mississippi Sound Watershed Complex. Click HERE to take the survey, your opinion matters!
To learn more about the study, you may read the Dauphin Island Watershed Management Program Project Description HERE.

(The dues-paid list is USUALLY updated about once a month, not as each and every donation check comes in.

If you are certain you have paid your dues, and do not see your name, please contact Denise in the office.)
Dauphin Island Property Owners Association
The BOD has created a sub-committee to work with property owners in the proximity of the five major Property Owner Parks (POPs) to seek appropriate solutions to the unauthorized usage of the properties. The first park meeting was held with property owners close to Lafitte Bay and some viable solutions are being evaluated further.
Other POP meetings will follow. If you live near to or have a special interest in any (or all) of the POPs and wish to be involved in these discussions, please let us know! Email the BOD or contact the office to be added!
Please remember the Office Manager takes a lunch daily, usually between 11-1. If you plan to stop by midday, give Denise a call first to be sure she's in the office.
