Tali MacArthur, the program manager for the Pennsylvania Environmental Council (PEC) and Pa. Organization of Watersheds and Rivers (POWR), is committed to helping watershed groups throughout state find the resources -- especially volunteers -- they need to continue their essential work.
"These are the waterways that are right in our backyard. These are the waterways where kids love to peel off their socks and shoes and jump in to explore. These are the places we can kayak and canoe and stand-up paddleboard and fish and hike along. This is a resource that is yours -- and it’s yours to protect," she shared in our most recent podcast. "Without all of us paying attention and getting involved and asking what we can do for these resources, they’re not going to be there for those sort of activities."
