South Mountain Watershed Workshop: Partnering to Protect Water

March 16 @ 9:00 am

LAST CHANCE! Register by end of day Wednesday, March 13th! Local water groups will be asked to inform future water-related efforts in the South Mountain region. Speakers include Chesapeake Bay Foundation—Pennsylvania, Capital RC&D, South Mountain Partnership, Johnston Run Revitalization Project, Yellow Breeches Watershed Association, Big Spring Watershed Association, and the Watershed Alliance of Adams County!
Watershed groups across the South Mountain region of Adams, Cumberland, Franklin, and York counties have made great strides in protecting and improving water quality, keeping riparian areas as green space, and raising awareness about the importance of our rivers and streams. When these groups work collaboratively with their local municipalities, the impact of these partnerships magnifies the results and ensures longevity of the projects. That is why Capital RC&D is partnering with the South Mountain Partnership to organize a half-day workshop.

Registration is required for this FREE event.

This FREE workshop is open to members of all area water groups with focused invitations to groups in Adams, Cumberland, Franklin, and York counties, as well as staff from municipalities in those counties. Attendees will hear from several watershed groups in the region about how they work effectively with their local municipalities on watershed protection efforts.

Workshop presenters include staff from Capital RC&D and the South Mountain Partnership and attendees will learn about potential funding opportunities being offered by the Partnership and other organizations, as well as representatives from the Johnston Run Revitalization Project (Dr. Elizabeth George), the Yellow Breeches Watershed Association (Brook Lenker), the Big Spring Watershed Association (Bill Ferris), and the Watershed Alliance of Adams County (Pat Naugle).

The workshop is free and includes breakfast and plenty of time for networking. Tickets are limited to 3 per organization to maximize the number of groups that can participate.

This workshop is funded by a grant from the Chesapeake Bay Funders Network, Chesapeake Bay Trust, National Fish and Wildlife Federation, US Environmental Protection Agency, and the Chesapeake Bay Program. It was also funded by a convening grant from the Foundation for Pennsylvania Watersheds.
