Watershed Camp

 
 
The North Fork Watershed Association and the Jefferson Conservation District joined efforts to educate students attending a summer camp at the YMCA in Brookville.  On August 25, 2016, Grace Pesselato, JCCD's Watershed Specialist used the Enviroscape to teach students about how water pollution can get into our streams from every day activities in our neighborhood.
 
After learning that it is important not to dump pollutants into storm drains as they go directly to streams in the area, participants placed markers on some storm drains along Main Street.  These markers will make the public aware that pollutants dumped in the storm drains may potentially pollute our streams.
