Happy Earth Week!
My name is Heather Fenyk, and I am President of the Board of the Lower Raritan Watershed Partnership.
During this time of quarantine, we, the Board, our interns and volunteers, miss being together and drawing inspiration from time together outside.
We are trying to find creative ways to connect with each other, and with you.
We know that time outside in nature, connecting with nature, allows us to become bigger than the problems we face.
We also know that service and stewardship gives us a similar broader view.
While we wait in our homes – that may also now serve as office, school, kitchen, classroom or gym – we invite you to prepare for stewardship!
We are now hosting virtual trainings in water quality monitoring or habitat connectivity planning – our first virtual training is pathogens monitoring webinar on Monday April 20. You can also sign up for our Habitat Connectivity planning workshop on May 4. Information on other upcoming events is on our events page.
We will also soon send invitations for a virtual flyover “tour” of our Lower Raritan Watershed. This special event will include Q & A with photographer Alison M. Jones, who will share images of the Raritan Basin taken during a recent flight sponsored by LightHawk.
The Covid-19 crisis has a huge impact on humanity, on our institutions, on ourselves.
During this time, it is hard to stay engaged in the environmental issues we care so deeply about.
We thank you for staying engaged!
We hope to soon see you in the watershed!
