Clean Water Advocacy Workshop

Pennsylvania’s waterways are facing some of their toughest threats to date. From cuts in funding over the last 16 years at the state level, to the current dismantling of environmental protections at the federal level, it's now more important than ever for you to get involved in the fight for clean water.

That's why we’re inviting conservationists like you to join us for a workshop at Wildwood Park in Harrisburg on Saturday, Nov. 10 to learn how you can help to protect and advocate for Pennsylvania waterways in your community.

With decades of experience in Harrisburg and Washington, D.C., staff from Trout Unlimited and PennFuture will host hands-on training, discussions, and presentations about ways you can advocate and use your voice to protect local streams, engage stakeholders, and speak with confidence to decision-makers and the media. Topics will include the Farm Bill, Pennsylvania’s stream upgrades, and other state and federal level clean water issues.

Following the morning workshop, you’ll have an opportunity to meet with members from the General Assembly to advocate for your local waterways and practice the new advocacy skillset you have learned.

When: Saturday, Nov. 10, 9:30 a.m. - 3:30 p.m.

Where: Wildwood Park - 100 Wildwood Way, Harrisburg, PA 17110, United States

Cost: This event is free of charge and lunch is provided.
