What’s your New Year’s resolution?
Setting a resolutions is thought to go as far back as Babylonian times, a tradition began to honor the god of Janus, whose two faces allowed him to look back into the past year and forward to the new year. Many people today still use January as a time to reflect on the last year and to establish goals for the future.
We sat down with our staff to determine what their resolutions are for 2020 to continue to grow their work and improve the TTF Watershed.
Julie, Executive Director: I am going to really listen more this year: to hear what our staff, Board Directors and Advisers, partners, and especially our watershed community constituents tell us about how their lives, needs, and dreams connect to water, nature, and our environment.
Ryan, Upstream Conservation Leader: In 2020, I hope to work with school groups and more youth in different capacities, such as our trout release event with Cheltenham Elementary School. It is incredible to see kids getting excited about being outside and learning about our watershed.
Nagiarry, Community Organizer: My New Year’s Resolution is to continuously connect and empower the neighborhoods in our watershed while growing our advocacy for Tacony Creek Park’s diverse ecosystems.
Doryán, Community Watershed Leader: I’m looking forward to strengthening relationships and connecting more with the community in 2020, listening for ideas on programs in the park that will create opportunities to express one’s creative side, as well as ways to enjoy and appreciate the outdoors.
Emilie, Development & Administration Manager: This year, I look forward to expanding the ways in which people can meaningfully contribute to TTF Watershed Partnership’s mission through our ever-expanding volunteer program, monthly recurring donations, corporate sponsorship, and more.
If you 2020 resolution includes helping to repair your community and earth, please let us know because…we need your help! Volunteer for yourself or your business or organization here.
See you soon!
