UPDATED 3/12/20: We have been closely monitoring the developments regarding the coronavirus and the recommendations prescribed by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) as well as state and local officials. Out of an abundance of caution and with the health and safety of all attendees in mind, we are postponing the workshop that was to be held on March 25, 2020. We urge everyone to familiarize themselves with the guidance issued by the CDC for preventing the spread of the virus (https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/community/index.html). We will keep you informed of any decisions regarding rescheduling. Thank you for your understanding.
Please join the Pennsylvania Organization for Watersheds and Rivers (POWR) and the Pennsylvania Environmental Council (PEC) for a gathering of watershed group leaders to share resource information, learn techniques to help build capacity, and network with other groups in the Southeast Pennsylvania region. Building on the success of the regional meetings held in 2018 and the 2019 conference, POWR and PEC are once again convening meetings across the state to identify needs and provide organizational capacity and technical resource tools.
Invited guests include staff from ALLARM, PA DCNR, County Conservation Districts and regional and local environmental organizations with watershed-focused programs and resources.
We hope you’ll join us on Wednesday March 25 from 8:30 am to 3:30 pm at the Rushton Conservation Center, home of The Willistown Conservation Trust in Newtown PA. The $15.00 registration fee includes lunch.

In addition to hearing from our presenters, we want to hear from you! Please come prepared to share your accomplishments and challenges. Feel free to bring photos, maps or other printed materials about your watershed organization to share with others. We look forward to seeing you!
