The AEC’s community watershed engagement program brings Penn State researchers, educators and students together with community members to solve water quality problems in local priority watersheds.

Conewago Creek Initiative

The Conewago Creek Initiative is a locally-led, collaborative partnership effort in the Conewago Creek watershed in Dauphin, Lebanon, and Lancaster Counties of Pennsylvania.

Greening the Lower Susquehanna

Much of the AEC’s watershed work is focused in the Lower Susquehanna, Pennsylvania’s  “hot spot” for land and water challenges. Our “Greening the Lower Susquehanna” program provides opportunities for citizens to work alongside community partners to improve water quality.

Chiques Creek Reenvisioned

Chiques Creek Reenvisioned is a collaborative watershed restoration initiative to support Pennsylvania’s pilot alternative TMDL approach in a high priority watershed in Lebanon and Lancaster Counties.  

Sustainable Watersheds Program at Penn State

Through our Sustainable Watersheds Program at Penn State we engage local watershed partners in and near campus and provide engaged scholarship opportunities for Penn State students.
