Workshop: How Watershed Groups can Work with Municipalities to Have a Greater Impact

Watershed groups across the South Mountain region 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 FREE half-day work-shop on Saturday, March 16 from 9:00 am to noon at the Adams County Conservation District Office (670 Old Harrisburg Road, Gettysburg, PA 17325).

This FREE workshop is open to members of watershed 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, and learn about potential funding opportunities from the South Mountain Partnership.

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.
