April 18 Watershed Forum

Please find attached a flyer related to the April 18, 2018 watershed forum.

This forum is being convened by the Spring Creek Watershed Commission, and facilitated by a Penn State Law environmental mediation class being taught this semester as a Sustainable Communities Collaborative project.

As noted in the flyer, the goal for the forum is to better understand participants’ perspectives on current water-related topics; what they might imagine for the future; how we might get from the present to the future; and how people might wish to engage in watershed planning.

By using facilitated breakout groups to allow people time to really discuss these topics, the watershed forum will help start a longer watershed planning process being conducted by the Spring Creek Watershed Commission.

Details for the April 18, 2018 forum are below, and in the attached flyer.

  • Wednesday, April 18, 2018, 6:308:45 PM (light refreshments will be served)
  • Central Pennsylvania Institute of Science (CPI), 540 N Harrison Rd, Bellefonte, PA (parking is free)
  • RSVP online to ensure we have enough seats, handouts, and food

All are welcome to participate in the discussions; please feel free to invite others who may also be interested.

In addition, interested people are invited to learn more about the Spring Creek Watershed and to participate in an online discussion forum through a program called “Placespeak.”

The vision of Placespeak is to allow people to make a meaningful impact on the communities in which they live, work and play. Penn State has paid for a subscription to this program to allow more people to participate in the discussions; to register and participate, see

Let me know if you have questions, and in the meantime, many thanks for helping spread the word.
