Green River Watershed Alliance
"... a community-led voice for the stewardship and protection of the River and its surrounding landscape."
How can we promote watershed awareness, and how would that impact flood resilience and ecological integrity?
How do our human relationships affect watershed health?
The theme of water is a powerful one, and we’ve found that people come together on the common ground of clean water. The Green River Watershed Alliance believes that civic action around our water begins when people start caring, and caring begins when people take ownership and identify with their watershed.
On May 3rd, 2018, the Green River Watershed Alliance explored these themes during their panel discussion at the Brattleboro Museum & Art Center in Brattleboro, VT. The evening was all about defining what "watershed identity" means, why it's important, and how to create a meaningful sense of place in our community.
Moderated by Gaye Symington of the High Meadows Fund, and facilitated by Emily Davis of the Windham Regional Commission, the panel discussion featured:
Rhonda Anderson, Indigenous Water Rights Activist & Speaker
Peter Forbes, Co-Founder of the Center for Whole Communities, Author & Speaker
Steve Libby, Executive Director, Vermont River Conservancy
