South-Central PA Watershed Workshop
Clean and abundant water is a cornerstone of what makes Pennsylvania unique. Behind that valuable resource is a host of people dedicated to protecting it. That is why the Pennsylvania Environmental Council (PEC), the Pennsylvania Organization for Watersheds & Rivers (POWR), and the Capital Area RC&D have teamed up to bring a Watershed Workshop to the south-central region of the state.
Those working for watershed and environmental organizations, their board members and volunteers, as well as interested citizens, are encouraged to attend this event to share information, learn techniques to help build membership, and network with other groups in the South-Central Pennsylvania region. This and similar meetings across the state are being organized to identify needs and provide organizational capacity and technical resource tools to help make watershed organizations across the Commonwealth as successful as possible.
Workshop presenters include staff from the South Mountain Partnership, the PA Department of Environmental Protection (DEP), the PA Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR), County Conservation Districts, and regional and local environmental organizations with watershed-focused programs and resources. And optional tour of Dickinson College’s sustainable features will wrap-up the day. The cost of the workshop is $15 and includes breakfast, lunch, and the optional tour.
