The 90's also brought forth a pilot program to address agricultural issues that affected water quality for millions of metropolitan residents. That program blossomed, took the name Watershed Agricultural Council, and began a legacy of linkages to watershed residents and collaborating agencies, landowners and city dwellers, working landscapes and clean water.
As we approach our 20th year, we invite you to share your stories, perspectives and relationships with the Council and its programs below. Your success is our success. We thank you for sticking with us through the years, helping us change as the times demanded, and perfecting many land conservation practices now internationally recognized on the planet. We too have transformed ourselves into a charitable organization that works with the private sector to further a public health benefit...and a whole lot more.
We can't make a six-degree connection to Kevin Bacon (unless he's a phantom program participant or we connect with him through this blog). But what we can do, is make a direct connection to you. Whether you are a farmer, Pure Catskills producer, WoodNet member, forest landowner or Eco-Steward, share with us how our relationship has impacted your life over the past 20 years. We'll be amazed at how those degrees of separation bring us closer with time.
