Enhancing Community and Watershed Sustainability

The Brandywine Conservancy, a watershed conservation organization in southeastern Pennsylvania, views municipal planning and resource protection efforts as critical to the sustainability of the Brandywine Creek watershed. For decades, the Conservancy's Environmental Management Center (EMC) has offered technical planning assistance to municipalities within its watershed, and has recently begun efforts to help municipal officials contribute to improving their communities' sustainability. John Theilacker, AICP, head of the EMC's municipal assistance program, and Wesley R. Horner, AICP, senior water resources advisor for the EMC, will share their community and watershed sustainability initiative through presentation and dialogue with session attendees in support of the Spring Creek Watershed Commission's own watershed sustainability initiative.
