Coalition for the Delaware River Watershed
CDRW wants to hear from the next generation of conservation leaders! Current undergrad and graduate students are invited to participate in a poster session at the 7th Annual Delaware River Watershed Forum on October 16th in Allentown, PA to showcase their research on environment and conservation topics (i.e. plastics, water quality, wildlife, climate change, pollution, environmental policy, etc.) to the Forum's 250+ attendees. The deadline for expressing interest is October 7 at noon.

New Jersey League of Conservation Voters
NJLCV recently celebrated Governor Murphy's appointments to the Highlands Council, a state agency that presides over the NJ Highlands. The Highlands are a physiographic region of Northwestern New Jersey that includes 88 municipalities within 7 counties and provides drinking water for over 5 million residents.

Trout Unlimited
The Ashokan-Pepacton Watershed Chapter of Trout Unlimited is conducting a Catskill heritage brook trout study to determine if the fish genetics from this tributary are consistent with documented New York State heritage brook trout strains. Caroline Shafer, New York field technician for Trout Unlimited, also writes about tagging stocked and wild trout to ultimately improve trout habitat.

Wildlands Conservancy
The Delaware River Watershed is losing open space at an alarming rate, while protecting open space is vital to clean air, healthy water, and livable communities. Thankfully, Wildlands Conservancy recently protected 60 acres in Pennsylvania's Lehigh Valley, which will be added to a future nature preserve planned for the area.

Orange County Land Trust
Orange County Land Trust just announced their preservation of 100 acres of Sullivan County, NY forest located in the Lower Neversink River Valley, part of the Delaware River Watershed. The land is comprised of hemlock northern hardwood forest and contains two streams, including a tributary of the Fowlwood Brook.
