The Lower Susquehanna Land and Water Conservation Summit is a joint effort of the Penn State Agriculture and Environment Center, Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay and the Chesapeake Bay Foundation and is generously funded through the ForumPlus Initiative of the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation. ForumPlus is a regional approach of the Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay’s Annual Chesapeake Watershed Forum. The Chesapeake Watershed Forum is an annual three day/two night conference held in Shepherdstown, WV that brings together representatives from local watershed organizations and governments to learn the latest restoration science and network with other groups facing similar challenges and to renew our focus on preserving and restoring the rivers and streams of the Chesapeake Bay Watershed.
