Pennsylvania Legacies #91: POWR to the People

Pennsylvania is home to hundreds of small, people-powered organizations dedicated to protecting and restoring local watersheds. These groups are accomplishing great things in their communities, typically on a shoestring budget. But could they be even more effective by coordinating their efforts?

PEC’s sister organization, the Pennsylvania Organization for Watersheds and Rivers (POWR), is forging a statewide community of watershed groups through initiatives like the upcoming “Watershed Connections” conference. Program manager Tali MacArthur previews the conference and the future of POWR.
