This includes technical support via a circuit rider, working with farmers of the Pa. Association for Sustainable Agriculture, contributing to technical reports, engaging watershed residents in the documentation of conditions across the focus areas of the initiative, collecting and interpreting data on macroinvertebrates and physicochemical parameters from stream sites to provide a baseline to evaluate goals for restoration and protection projects, and contributing to Coordinating and Advisory Committees for the Delaware River Watershed Initiative.
