20th Anniversary Kick-Off

February 13 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

- Free
Jacobs Creek Watershed Association (JCWA) would like to personally invite you to a KICK-OFF event next week.  We are going to announce some BIG news in celebration of our 20th Anniversary year at JCWA.  Meet up with us at Jacobs Creek Park @ GreenLick Lake (the future location of an amazing and unique recreation equipment program (information below)).
Jacobs Creek Watershed Association, in celebration of its 20th anniversary, is announcing its 2019 event season and activities.  We will host 20 recreation events, remove 20,000 lbs of trash, educate 2,000 kids, plant 200 trees, and remove an additional 2.0 million gallons of potential flood water out our watershed.  JCWA is small in staff and budget, but our programs are BIG in impact.  This year, each accomplishment is going to be revolutionary, innovative, and strongly grounded in our mission.
 
We very much would like to celebrate the kick off with you by our side.  We apologize for the short notice, we are just too excited to wait.
Please join us:
WHO: Friends, Members, Media, and Partners
WHAT: a genuine press conference
WHERE: Jacobs Creek Park @ Greenlick Lake
(Jacobs Creek Park Boat Ramp, Mudd School Road, Mount Pleasant PA, 15666)
WHEN: February 13, 2019 @ 12 PM
WHY: We plan to announce MANY BIG THINGS! Science camp expansions! Tree Planting Projects! Tire-Round Up events!
In addition, one of our most important announcements will be something completely NEW.  This press conference will include information about our brand new members services, including free access to a water based recreation equipment program at the three county parks within our watershed. We will be the first watershed in the state to have this new membership program available.  The program is a new way to meet our mission and we want to tell the world!  This press conference is an opportunity to announce to the region how we as an organization are moving forward.
This program is only possible due to the support of our partner organization, Performance Kayak, the best shop for water based recreation equipment in our region and a strong supporter of water conservation everywhere.  The funding was made possible by the Myles D. Sampson Family Fund of the Community Foundation of Westmoreland County at the Pittsburgh Foundation.  In addition, this program was financed in part by a grant from the Community Conservation Partnerships Program Environmental Stewardship Fund under the administration of the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, Bureau of Recreation and Conservation administered through the Pennsylvania Environmental Council’s Laurel Highlands Mini Grant Program.
PLEASE JOIN US.
