B4gN7w5IYAArOdM.jpg-largeThe 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.unnamed

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

Grant LaRouche of the National Wildlife Federation on 2015 Policy Priorities

Laura Craig of American Rivers on the Waters of the US Rule

Joy Bergey of PennFuture on Stormwater Permitting Improvements in Pennsylvania

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

Finally, we all appreciated the opportunity to discuss how our own organization rates using the Key Capacity Indicators for Organizational Health presented by Mary Ellen Olcese of the River Network.
