The 2010 Schuylkill Watershed Congress will be held on March 13 at the Montgomery County Community College West Campus in Pottstown.
The keynote presentation will feature the story behind challenging a stormwater permit and winning in the Crum Creek Watershed in Delaware County.
There will also be one-on-one noprofit coaching and consultation sessions on topics like fund raising in a down economy.
With a focus on networking across disciplines and a goal of presenting new information about watershed restoration, the annual Schuylkill Watershed Congress has become a highly anticipated event for watershed citizens interested in understanding, protecting and restoring their local streams.
Whether you are a volunteer dedicated to improving your watershed, a municipal official who cares about water resources, a conservation professional charged with protecting our waterways, a teacher who wants to inform others about watersheds, or a student who wants to know more about stream function, the Schuylkill Watershed Congress offers something for you.
The Congress will feature concurrent and poster sessions covering a broad range of watershed topics and exhibits by watershed organizations, environmental consulting firms and government agencies.
