Celebrate Success

Spotlight on Success

Community Watershed Organization volunteer and staff leaders, along with key partner organizations and agencies, work together to accomplish great things for local watersheds and rivers. From streamside and in-stream habitat restoration projects, invasive species removal, and trash clean-ups to watershed educational events for youth and families and river paddling sojourns, a CWO near you is making the watershed a cleaner and healthier place to fish, explore, enjoy, recreate, and live.

Each month, we will feature a Spotlight on Success- a story about a member watershed organization or partnership that is working hard to improve the quality of a local stream, raise awareness and understanding of a key watershed issue, or provide an opportunity for engagement and recreation along a waterway. 

Feel free to contact us with a story you think should be featured here!

A New Watershed Group Makes a Splash

Last month our success story took us to Northampton county. This week we’re introducing a new group leading local stream corridor restoration and clean-up efforts right next door in Lehigh County. Even the darkest clouds have silver linings, and the leaders of the Little Lehigh Watershed Stewards found that some of the restrictions imposed by the pandemic actually created opportunities to launch a new community-based and community-led watershed group and host safe outdoor volunteer events.
