Watersheds, Rainwater and Runoff – Helping your neighborhood deliver clean waters to our lake
Speaker/Guide: John Jablonski III
Location: Lakeside porch of the Youth Activities Center near Heinz Beach
John is the executive director of the Chautauqua Watershed Conservancy. The CWC has been educating landowners on lake-friendly yard care for over twenty years. John will discuss what actions homeowners can take to help their neighborhoods deliver clean water to our lake or local streams. Sewage is not the only water quality threat to our lake. Suburban yards are a threat also. What can we do with the environment we control?
With a focus on land conservation and watershed education, the CWC, a 501C3 is dedicated to preserving and enhancing the water quality, scenic beauty and ecological health of the lakes, streams and watersheds of the Chautauqua region. Working with residents, landowners, landscapers, developers, contractors, public officials, and governmental entities, CWC promotes best land management practices and preserves and restores the waterways/sheds of the region. CWC has led efforts resulting in the conservation of more than 1,000 acres of land and 2 miles of shoreline! chautauquawatershed.org
