*Information Exchanges are free and open to the public
The PWP coordinates periodic Information Exchanges so members can share experience and gain new prospective on important issues. We discuss achieving success in conservation, restoration, invasive species control, endangered species protection, and a wide range of subjects of concern. Concerned citizens, watershed and conservation leaders, and public officials from across the Potomac River watershed and the wider Chesapeake Bay watershed are invited to attend our free Information Exchanges.
For more information, or answers to any questions on any of the information on these presentations, email the Potomac Watershed Partnership Coordinator or call (304) 856-1385.
WV Project CommuniTree (CTree) promotes tree plantings and education on public land through volunteerism in the Potomac Headwaters of West Virginia. In 2012, CTree assisted over 1,400 community volunteers in planting 726 urban trees across the Potomac Headwaters.
The CTree Spring 2013 planting season is currently underway, with 16 groups organizing plantings that will lead to an additional 828 urban trees being planted. Check out past projects in the WV Project CommuniTree 2012 Report

BACKYARD BUFFERS, MD
The Potomac Watershed Partnership, in cooperation
with the Maryland DNR Forest Service present the
Backyard Buffers Program. This program is designed
to assist homeowners who have a stream or other
waterway on or adjacent to their property to create a
streamside buffer of native trees and shrubs. A
streamside buffer can create habitat for wildlife, reduce
peak winter temperatures, and reduce the amount of
sediment, fertilizer, and toxic materials that enter our
waterways. Deep-rooted trees and shrubs can also
stabilize streambanks, protecting them from erosion. More information here.
