ABSTRACT:The Tookany/Tacony-Frankford Watershed Partnership (TTF Watershed) connects its watershed residents and communities to their creeks. TTF Watershed has planted thousands of trees and installed GSI projects at 25 sites across its 30 square mile watershed. Julie Slavet, Executive Director since 2011, will share how this 15 year old organization uses lots of tools to implement education, stewardship, restoration, and advocacy to improve water quality... and how the staff has innovated these past months to stay engaged and get things done.
