WHY IT’S IMPORTANT
Pooling Together for Progress
Environment and Economy
Frequent flooding, severe erosion, streambed scouring, riverbank and habitat degradation, sewage overflows, and other pollutants related to stormwater runoff negatively impact the health of our streams and the health of our communities.

Working Towards a Better Tomorrow
Seven generation stewardship requires us to think and plan for a future beyond our own. How will our actions affect the next generation, the one after that, and the one after that? While some of our work at WoSPgh has immediate results (stream clean up days!), other projects require more time to see improvement. Regardless of project timeline, all progress is important and the effects of climate change remind us that we can and must work together now to improve the well-being of the watersheds in the future.
Pathways to Civic Engagement
Whether through volunteer events and community engagement sessions, organizing and activism events, or increasing political will around key issues, WoSPgh works to allow for the public to have a say in the health and development of their communities.
