Stretching out of Zoom boxes: Partners semi-annual meeting recap
 
Another successful Partners Semi-Annual meeting for the books! Thank you to those that were able to participate and collaborate at East Lampeter Township Community Park last week. We loved having everyone together in-person to share success stories (more to read here), hear from two all star partner organizations (thank you Zeshan and Jeff!) and discuss collaborative opportunities.

Success Stories from Clean Water Fund Grantees

The owners of the House at Climbers Run, a retreat center and rental space, used to dread heavy rain because it meant that the stream on their property would flood, causing significant land erosion, safety concerns, and increased pollution. 

But because dollars granted from the Clean Water Fund, Donegal Trout Unlimited helped them restore 1,530 linear feet of stream and plant 2.45 acres of riparian buffers so the streambanks will remain in place and the property owners can continue to share “the magic that is living in the country” with their guests.
