Spring Creek watershed: the key to a sustainable future

Oct 18, 2016
01:00 PM to 04:00 PM
State College Borough Building, Room 201, South Allen Street, State College, PA 16801

A diplomacy and sustainability master class with Dr. Clive Lipchin, Director of the Center for Transboundary Water Management, The Arava Institute, Israel

Water is essential to human, economic and environmental health. We must work together if we are to ensure that the Spring Creek Watershed continues to meet the needs of a growing population.

Join a group of Penn State faculty, staff and students, MS4 engineers, public works directors, developers, and environmental groups to productively grapple with one of State College’s most debated topics: how to foster a thriving, regenerative economy that enhances rather than diminishes our ecological assets. Collaboratively build solutions for our watershed leveraging the insight and facilitation of one of the world leaders in this area – Dr. Clive Lipchin.

Active participants will be limited to the first 25 to register but the room can hold 50 more observers. All active participants will receive a free copy of the University of Arkansas’s Community Design Center LID Handbook.
