Conference Covers Rising Waters
The Fifth Lehigh Valley Watershed Conference is scheduled for Tuesday, October 9, at Lehigh University’s STEPS building, in Bethlehem. This year’s conference theme is Rising Waters: What a Wetter Pennsylvania Means for Local Communities. The previous conferences have been great successes, with well over 200 participants attending talks on a variety of water resource and environmental resource topics and issues. The 2012 conference will feature a repeat of the very popular macroinvertebrate laboratory and several talks on the effects of changing patterns of precipitation on streams and municipal governments.
The conference will bring together watershed groups, municipal officials, educators, scientists, technical experts, agencies and industry representatives to forge partnerships to effectively protect and enhance the natural resources of the Lehigh Valley area. Sponsorships for the Fifth Lehigh Valley Watershed Conference are available.
