The entire TTF team (all 6 of us!) attended the recent Coalition for the Delaware Watershed (CDRW) Member meeting hosted by the Delaware River Basin Commission. This meeting provided an opportunity for TTF staff — who work both upstream in Montgomery County and in Philadelphia’s neighborhoods — to meet new colleagues from near and far and learn about the Coalition’s accomplishments and priorities for 2015.
We enjoyed meeting at the DRBC office and seeing the many historic and interesting maps displayed in halls and offices, as well as the “Ruth Patrick River Garden” courtyard named in honor of the world-renowned environmental scientist and Philadelphia resident.
We learned valuable information through updates from the following speakers:
Kim Biedler, Project Director, CDRW on 2014 Annual Meeting Overview & Accomplishments
Laura Craig of American Rivers on the Waters of the US Rule
Ginger North of the Delaware Nature Society on Building a Clean Water Constituency in Delaware
Jeff Skelding, Friends of the Upper Delaware on the Flexible Flow Management Plan
