Connecting the Drops

What can you do to protect our water resources?

Sullivan Renaissance is holding a free “Fall Seminar” about protecting water at 6:00 p.m. on Wednesday, September 2 at 6:00 p.m. in the CVI Center in Ferndale. The seminar will be led by Karen Schneller-McDonald, author of Connecting the Drops, who has served as a Sullivan Renaissance judge for many years.

The water we use depends on networks of wetlands, streams, and watersheds. We need a healthy environment that sustains our personal and community health; we also need sustainable economic development that does not destroy the benefits we derive from nature. Our ability to accomplish both depends on how well we can “connect the drops.”

Schneller-McDonald makes clear the important connections among natural cycles, watersheds and ecosystems; the benefits they provide; and how specific development activities affect water quality and supply. She will discuss water protection as it relates to ecology and watershed science, techniques for evaluating environmental impacts, obstacles to protection and how to overcome them, and tips for protection strategies to maximize chances for success.

“Clean water is a basic need. Understanding the influence of land use activities on our water resources is critical to supporting the practices and policies that protected them,” said film actor and local resident Mark Ruffalo, “Connecting the Drops offers down-to-earth guidance that will help individuals and communities recognize stewardship opportunities and act.”

The methods described in Connecting the Drops have broad application in diverse geographic locations, and although the environmental details may differ, the methods are the same. Participants will be able to purchase Schneller-McDonald’s book if they would like.

Space is limited and pre-registration is requested. Refreshments will be provided.

Sullivan Renaissance is a beautification and community development program principally funded by the Gerry Foundation. Sponsors include Bold Gold Media Group/Thunder 102, FisherMears Associates, Kristt Company, Robert Green Dealerships, Sullivan County Democrat, The River Reporter, Thompson Sanitation, and WSUL/WVOS.
