Beginning Fall 2011, the Penn State Agriculture and Environment Center website will feature one article each week from the Conewago Currents. The Conewago Currents is a newsletter that that explores the discoveries underway in the Conewago Creek Initiative - a targeted watershed approache - providing updates on what is being done to improve water quality impacts from all landscapes - working lands, neighborhoods, and public lands. 'The Coordinator's Report', authored by Penn State Extension's Matt Royer, provides an overview of the work underway in this season. Enjoy and remember to visit AEC News each week for a new post from the Conewago Currents.
