At the Lehigh Valley Watershed Conference, held October 17, the keynote speaker will be Gary Walters, assessment section chief of the Pennsylvania Association of Developmental Educators, talking about historical water quality data for the Lehigh River and how things have changed over the last century.

Highlights include infrastructure planning for a changing climate; the science of pipelines; North American cougars headed to the Lehigh Valley; the latest on mosquito and tick control; and website and online outreach for watershed associations.

The conference will feature two half-day workshops on plant and insect invasive species, with full day of continuing education credits available for the professional landscaping community and a MS-4 track for municipal staff and consultants charged with implementing stormwater regulations.

The nonprofit Watershed Coalition of the Lehigh Valley is dedicated to keeping the region’s streams clean and healthy. They assist volunteers working on water and natural resource projects and support outreach and education efforts, and share tools and resources critical to healthy streams in the Lehigh Valley.
