Bringing It Home: Lessons from the Field for Making
Watershed Management Work
will be held on October 21-22, 2002 at the Deer
Creek Resort and Conference Center, Mt. Sterling, Ohio.

The workshop is designed to bring together watershed managers from
throughout Ohio, state agency representatives, and regional and national
watershed experts to discuss a number of issues critical to watershed
management. Attendees to the workshop will gain access to a number of
experienced professionals and other resources, and have a chance to
interact with other managers facing similar situations.

The workshop will cover such topics as financial planning and fundraising,
TMDL development and implementation, land use planning, working with local
governments, integrating watershed management within a regulatory
framework, and tools for watershed planning. There will also be a site
tour of innovative BMPs in central Ohio.

This workshop is part of a public-private initiative in Ohio designed to
provide watershed organizations with the tools needed for comprehensive
watershed planning. Project partners include the Great Lakes Commission,
Ohio Environmental Protection Agency, Ohio Department of Natural Resources,
Ohio State University Extension, and Tetra Tech, Inc. For more
