Annual Members & Friends Celebration
Brodhead Watershed Association will celebrate getting outdoors by going online with its virtual annual Members & Friends Celebration on Friday, Sept. 25, 2020. The event, to be held 6 to 7 p.m. via Zoom, is free, and the public is invited.
Keynote speaker Cindy Dunn, Pennsylvania’s secretary of Conservation and Natural Resources, will talk about the extreme popularity of state parks during the pandemic and how DCNR handles the effects of that. Dunn will speak at 6:30 p.m.
The celebration will begin at 6 p.m. with a short meeting to include the election of board members, introduction of BWA’s new executive director and the president’s report.
BWA’s Get Outdoors Poconos program, aimed at introducing people to public open spaces, including state parks and forests, has been running successfully for six years, with a hike per month. Now the hikes are virtual, with video contributed by Pocono Mountains Visitors Bureau and Laughsalot Studios.
Registration is required to attend the celebration and obtain the Zoom link. Please register by emailing your name to email@example.com. Please write “celebration” in the subject line. Deadline to register is noon Sept. 25.
