Have a wetland issue? Check your WATCH
The Wetland Assessment Tool for Condition and Health (WATCH) is a tool to provide guidance to restoration practitioners in evaluating multiple aspects of current and future tidal salt marsh conditions. The ultimate goal of WATCH is to provide a method to evaluate the weight of evidence regarding ecological deficiency at a site to inform thoughtful decision-making in the context of different management goals and the appropriate selection of restoration tactics.

The Schuylkill Action Network (SAN) has a new plan with ambitious environmental goals for the next five years.
By 2025, the group hopes to preserve 5,000 acres within the Schuylkill River Watershed, remove 5 million pounds of trash, and have $500 million in infrastructure investment in the watershed, and that’s just a few of the plan’s many goals.
