Get Early-Bird Rates for PA’s Volunteer Water Monitoring Summit

There is still time to get early-bird discount registration for the upcoming Pennsylvania Statewide Summit for Volunteer Watershed Monitors – WATER: Watershed Actions Toward Environmental Rewards.

The summit will be held on May 4-5 at the Eisenhower Conference Center in Gettysburg. By registering early (before April 10), you save $15 on registration costs for the two-day summit ($75 vs. $100 after April 10). You can also register for one day at a cost of $40.

The summit offers plenary presentations, concurrent sessions and hands-on workshops. A special showing of the Emmy-award winning film, Knee Deep will take place on May 4. This film follows the monitoring efforts of the Center-in-the-Park Senior Environment Corps as they monitor the Monoshone Creek in Philadelphia.

On May 5 the agenda includes a presentation by Linda Green, a nationally known advocate for volunteer monitoring and director of the volunteer lake monitoring program at the University of Rhode Island.

Concurrent tracks will cover Restoration and Protection, Volunteer Program Management and Sustainability, Monitoring Nets and Boats (technical stuff) and Making Monitoring Matter: Government 101.

Hands-on workshops will be offered both Friday and Saturday afternoons and will cover macroinvertebrate monitoring, habitat assessment, water chemistry and lake monitoring. Each workshop will be capped at a maximum of 20 participants so pre-registration is required (see registration form).

Meet new people, network and exchange information as well as learn new things.
