Event Details

 

If you've been looking for an opportunity to "think globally, but act locally," in Montgomery County, then mark your calendars for the Community Clean Water Summit on March 3rd, 2012 (snow date March 11th) and show your support for the local streams in your watershed. They need your help!

 

This summit is the perfect opportunity for networking and volunteerism, as you will meet with local environmental leaders working to make Montgomery County a cleaner and healthier place to live. Join your fellow neighbors and learn how you can make a difference in the health of the County's streams. Throughout this process, you're guaranteed make new friends and have fun!

 

In addition to hearing from the various speakers listed, there will be opportunities throughout the summit to speak with numerous organizations directly involved in the conservation of local streams and health of our communities.

 

Don't miss your chance to be a part of this local movement. The event is free, but there is a limited space, so hurry and register for this wonderful occasion!  *Make sure to come early and check out the tent that REI has generously donated as a door prize and the Rain Barrel Raffle that ICPRB is kindly sponsoring!  You must be present to win!  Light lunch will be provided.

 

To help reduce waste, we encourage you to bring your own cup to the event. Thanks!  Hope to see you there!
