Preserving Streams Through the Valley

Green Drinks, the Lehigh Valley’s premier green networking event, will meet at the Allentown Brew Works on March 14 from 5:30 to 7 p.m., at Fegley's Allentown Brew Works. The meeting begins with networking to meet others interested in sustainability, followed by a program, Water, Water Everywhere, at 6:15 p.m.

This primer on stream health in the Lehigh Valley is presented by Abigail Pattishall, Ph.D., vice president of conservation at the Wildlands Conservancy. She will give a brief introduction to the basics of determining stream health, and then explain in more depth about the state of our streams.

In addition to holding 70 conservation easements throughout the Lehigh river watershed, Wildlands owns and manages nine nature preserves that total more than 2,600 acres and are open to the public.

Location: 812 Hamilton St., Allentown. For more information, call Lehigh Valley Sustainability Network President Andrea Wittchen at 610-730-8246 or visit
