The Delaware Riverkeeper Network and its partners will host the 2012 Schuylkill Watershed Congress on March 10 at the West Campus of Montgomery County Community College in Pottstown.
With a focus on networking across disciplines, the Watershed Congress melds science, policy and practical applications into one program. As a result, the annual Watershed Congress is a highly anticipated event for people interested in understanding, protecting and restoring their local streams.
The 2012 program features sessions on: Native Plants; Green Infrastructure; Monitoring and Evaluating in the Hopewell Big Woods; Schuylkill Watershed Geology; Dam Removal; Next Steps in American Shad Restoration; Sustainable Stormwater Management; Pennsylvania Delaware River Basin Conservation Reserve Enhancement Program; Chemical-Free Lawn Management; Constructed Wetlands for On-Lot Waste Water Treatment and more!
The 2012 Watershed Congress is made possible in part by grants from the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, Bureau of Recreation and Conservation's Environmental Stewardship Fund, and Pennsylvania Sea Grant.
