7th Annual Delaware River Watershed Forum

The 7th Annual Delaware River Watershed Forum will take place in Allentown, PA at the Renaissance Allentown Hotel on October 16th and 17th. The Forum will bring together organizations
and individuals spanning the four watershed states of PA, NY, NJ, and DE. The Forum allows for collaboration among those working on environmental conservation and policy; and provides professional and personal development opportunities.

Workshops and speakers will focus on topics such as water quality, agriculture, community engagement, equity, and environmental policy. This year, we're excited to introduce new elements to the Forum, including a student poster session, municipal awards, and lightning talks featuring Delaware Watershed Conservation Fund grant recipients!

As always, we'll also be offering fun, interactive conservation-focused field trips, including: a Lehigh River Bike Ride, a Musconetcong River Restoration Tour, a Delaware River Film Festival, a Blue Mountain Superfund Site Restoration Tour, and Villa Milagro Winery Tour.
