State Agency, Environmental Groups, and Universities Partner to Implement Precision Conservation in Pennsylvania

On August 25, 2016, the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF) awarded funding to the Chesapeake Conservancy for a major restoration and conservation initiative in the Susquehanna River watershed to be conducted in partnership with the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, Susquehanna University, Bloomsburg University, and the Chesapeake Bay Foundation. The three-year initiative will pilot a new approach to conservation with local partners in Pennsylvania’s Centre and Clinton counties to reduce nutrient and sediment pollution from nonpoint sources to improve water quality and scenic beauty. Once complete, the project may serve as a national model.
