What do people say about past Watershed Congresses? See comments from people who attended in 2016:

“I found the whole day to be informative and useful! … One of my must attend conferences. … The Congress was terrific, so much fun! … The conference was very engaging for me. … My first Watershed Congress was fantastic, and your organization was so smooth. … I really learned a lot from many of the presenters. … Congresses like this are critical for maintaining focus on these much needed topics. … Enjoyed it and made some good connections. … Thank you for all of your hard work in making the Schuylkill Watershed Congress a fantastic event. I’m happy I was able to participate and see what the Congress is like. I’m also psyched to have won a door prize."
