The Spring Creek Watershed Commission will hold a "Forum on Understanding and Stewarding Water Quantity and Quality in the Spring Creek Watershed” at 6:30 p.m. on April 18 at the Central Pennsylvania Institute of Science.
The forum is free and members of the public are encouraged to attend. Registration is available on the Penn State Law website.
Facilitated by Penn State Law senior lecturer Lara Fowler and the students in her environmental mediation class, the forum is being held to bring people together to identify issues and think about what the future might look like for the Spring Creek watershed. This initial forum will help set the stage for additional work in 2018 and beyond on a watershed plan for Spring Creek.
Fowler and her students will be conducting a series of interviews prior to the forum. To participate in these interviews, individuals should email Fowler at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The community is also invited to participate in an online forum in advance of, and after, the April 18 event. The online forum is being run through a program called Placespeak. To participate, visit www.placespeak.com/en/topic/5684-spring-creek-watershed-study/ and follow the instructions for creating a profile and logging into the discussion. Contact information and data gathered through this online process will be used only to invite participants to further discussions and to inform the Watershed Commission’s future watershed planning process.
