Watershed Protection and Education

Watershed – A region or area bounded peripherally by a divide and draining ultimately to a particular watercourse or body of water.
The Conservation District supports watershed association development and projects with organizational and technical assistance provided by the Watershed Specialist. Watershed Associations invite members of a community to work together to solve or repair complex issues within their waterways and watersheds. Currently there are six active watershed associations in Northumberland County. They are:

  • Shamokin Creek Restoration Alliance
  • Little Shamokin Creek Watershed Association
  • Chillisquaque Limestone Watershed Association
  • Roaring Creek Valley Conservation Association
  • Tri-Valley Watershed Association
  • Mahanoy Creek Watershed Association
