Jun 27: Ohio River Watershed vision

Headwaters: A Bold New Vision for the Ohio River Watershed 

In many ways, the Ohio River is an unsung resource.  The Ohio’s near-thousand-mile course flows through Pennsylvania and five other states before emptying into the Mississippi. It’s a source of drinking water for more than five million people.  But its long legacy as a “working river” has also made it the most polluted in the country.  Those living along its banks from Pittsburgh to Louisville are now beginning to realize that reimagining their relationship to the river could prove crucial to the region’s future.

Join WESA's The Allegheny Front for a discussion about the future of the Ohio River watershed, with a keynote talk by Collin O'Mara, President and CEO of the National Wildlife Federation, followed by a panel discussion 

6-8 p.m. at Point Park University's Center for Media Innovation (305 Wood St. 15222).  Complimentary hors d’oeuvres and beverages provided.  Space is limited, so please register early!  More information and online registration are here.
Hosted by The Allegheny Front to celebrate the launch of their new podcast, Headwaters, which will explore what this new chapter in the river’s history could look like — and how we can get there.
