William Penn Foundation’s New Watershed Program Investment Targets Schuylkill Highlands Conservation Landscape

Three sub watershed clusters defined by the William Penn Foundation are located wholly or in part within the Schuylkill Highlands Conservation Landscape.

The newly defined William Penn Foundation Program targets these clusters for further potential Investment. Several key partners are collaboratively working to craft strategies for each cluster to advance on the ground work related to improving water quality in the Delaware River watershed.

The three clusters include the southern Hopewell Big Woods area and French Creek Valley, the Marsh Creek area, and a good portion of the Berks County middle and northern sections of the Schuylkill Highlands Conservation Landscape. This is great news for leveraging conservation and agricultural project work in this landscape. More to come on this effort as it progresses.
