Want to know what is a watershed?  Want to know how the ways in which you use your property affect water quality and stream issues, such as erosion?  Please plan to attend this upcoming program!  Col. Nahorn (B.A., Environmental Studies, Oberlin College), Director of the New Indian Ridge Museum & 1811 Historic Shupe Homestead Wildlife Preserve, Vice President of the Amherst Historical Society, and an environmental issues consultant will present, “What is a Watershed: Landuse Affects Water Quality & Stream Bank Integrity” for the Pittsfield Historical Society’s General Membership Meeting.

Please plan to attend the 7pm Thursday, October 13th meeting at the Pittsfield Township Hall near the corner of Routes 58 & 303 in Pittsfield.  We hope you can join us!
