At our second annual Watershed Milestones Award Ceremony & Reception on Wednesday, May 22, TTF will honor people, organizations, public agencies, and companies whose efforts in improving and protecting the TTF watershed deserve special recognition. Meet the featured honoree below!
TTF Watershed Educator
TTF recognizes Dottie Baumgarten for her passion and dedication as a watershed educator committed to improving the health and vitality of our watershed. She worked closely with Cheltenham Township, the Partnership for Delaware Estuary, and TTF to create and develop the Clean Water Partners program to educate and engage businesses on stormwater management.
Dottie is not your average environmental educator with the Philadelphia Water Department. Through her firm, Sustainable Choices, she shares her enthusiasm and knowledge at events and programs from tours to conferences, across the region. An active member of the Cheltenham Environmental Advisory Council, Dottie founded the Friends of Grove Park in Glenside. She teaches sustainability and gardening to both children and their parents at House at Pooh Corner in Germantown.
