North Branch Nature Center’s Virtual Panel Discussion
Upstream–Downstream: A River Resilience Panel Discussion
Upstream–Downstream is a celebration of the Winooski watershed and our place within it. This discussion about the health of our local rivers features panelists who bring different perspectives about our waterways. The panelists will be addressing the questions and concerns submitted by over 100 community members during our January film festival: What are the greatest threats facing the watershed? What are the successes of watershed conservation? What’s the scoop on pollution, storm water, E. coli, and aquatic biodiversity in the Winooski? How are we protecting our rivers, and what can we do to help? Join us to learn about these topics and many others.
