Over the last several years, a partnership of over thirty organizations called the Conewago Creek Initiative has been working cooperatively to increase watershed engagement and work with farmers and landowners to adopt land management practices to improve water quality. The Initiative's work has resulted in increased citizen engagement and outreach, an increase in adoption of best management practices, and positive water quality improvement trends in the watershed. The Initiative provides a model for watershed community based engagement.
