Scrapbook Photo 07/11/20 - PA Chesapeake Bay Watershed Implementation Plan Team Meets July 20; A Lot Has Happened:
Scholarships Available For Sept. 28-30 Chesapeake Watershed Forum

Scholarships are available for Pennsylvania residents who would like to attend the 2012 Chesapeake Watershed Forum in Shepherdstown, WV – September 28-30.

Why should I attend this event you may ask? Here are 5 good reasons…

5) Yes believe it or not and whether you like it or not, the watershed you live and work in is part of the Chesapeake Bay (unless you live in Pittsburgh or Philadelphia areas but you can still attend);

4) Fabulous fun and food at the National Training Conservation Center. Need a break from the ordinary then come on down;

3) Great opportunity to network with professionals and representatives from around the Bay watershed and beyond. A poster session will be held Saturday night and you will be able to view and interact with the authors of these posters describing Chesapeake Bay watershed projects, programs, and activities, and to vote for the Best Poster Award;

2) Learn the latest concerning WIP, TMDLs, WARPT, UTC, EPA, CV, UDA, LID, MICKEY MOUSE, etc, oops well whatever come and learn what and how all these and other acronyms (besides Mickey) related to the important work you are doing in your local watershed; AND

1) Some of the workshops will have a local interest such as Volunteer-Based Marcellus Monitoring; River Towns; Getting Ahead of the Curve (highlighting two case-study campaigns of the Lower Susquehanna Riverkeeper) and more.

Who do I contact?  Lou Etgen by sending email to: before the August 30 deadline.
