Lehigh Valley Watershed Conference At Lehigh University On Oct. 13

The 6th Lehigh Valley Watershed Conference will be held from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on October 13 at Lehigh University’s STEPS Building, 1 West Packer Avenue, Bethlehem.
The Conference serves as a forum that brings together community watershed organizations, municipal officials, educators, students, scientists, technical experts, natural resource agency staff, industry representatives and the public to discuss effective ways to improve and protect the land and water resources throughout the greater Lehigh Valley.
This year’s conference is titled “Freshwater Ecology” and will provide a focus on understanding and protecting our freshwater environments and the organisms that live in them.
As in past conferences, there will also be sessions on perennial and emerging issues associated with watershed conservation.
New to this year’s Conference is a landscaper’s track, with four sessions focused on environmentally-sensitive landscaping practices for professional landscapers, with continuing education credits available.
The Conference will also include two half-day workshops: one on aquatic insect identification and the other on working with publicly available information to build effective watershed GIS.
The Conference will close with a networking reception from 4:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. Cost for the full day conference is $45, which includes conference sessions, lunch, snack breaks and the networking reception.
Students with college ID may attend free of charge; however, all students must register before the conference and include their college affiliation in their registration.
The Lehigh Valley Watershed Conference is organized by the Watershed Coalition of the Lehigh Valley and its many organizational partners.
