Podcast: Watershed Specialist Aaron Eldred on stream restoration, vital importance of watershed groups
Aaron Eldred, a watershed specialist with the Columbia County Conservation District, has done quite a bit of work on stream restoration via added structural elements. He also has seen the vital importance of watershed associations and how they spark real change within the greater watershed.
Aaron has also overseen the county's drone technology in terms of waterway monitoring, and was a key contributor to the recent Catawissa Creek nomination for 2022 River of the Year consideration.
In our newest podcast episode, he talks about all these topics and how family outdoor vacations -- and one specific pollution event -- helped shape his passion for our resources and his career path.
