Cindy Pierson has started the Watchdogs of the Watersheds, an environmental group focusing on the lower region of the Pompeston Creek.
Cindy Pierson wants folks to know that she’s still in the area, and ever concerned about the Pompeston Creek—she’s just traveled downstream a bit, where her stalwart vigilance of the waterway will continue.

Cindy Pierson doesn’t care what people think about her. “I know some people think I’m crazy,” Pierson cracks. But, more seriously, “I want to help educate people in our communities about keeping the waterway and the grounds nearby clean and free of pollutants.” Pierson speaks rapidly—words and phrases plunge. She’s eager, and so passionate about the local environment; one marvels at her devotion—she recently showed up dressed as a bee at a neighborhood event.
