Sharing information, tools, and practices for watershed protection and restoration

The Watershed Congress Along the Schuylkill River advances the best available information and techniques for protecting and restoring watersheds. The focus on networking across disciplines means that the Congress melds science, policy and practical applications into one program. Every year, a growing and changing group of individuals attends to gain new knowledge, acquire tools, and practice techniques that will allow them to take active roles in the stewardship of their natural resources.

As COVID19 begins to recede, we are all looking to the day when we can gather in person once again for the annual Watershed Congress. However, out of continued caution, we are planning once again to present the Watershed Congress with a week of virtual programming.

The 2021 Watershed Congress will be held from Monday, September 20 to Friday, September 24.
