2019 SNEC Achievement Award at the 74th Annual SWCS International Conference

The Soil and Water Conservation Society held its 74th Annual International Conference, titled Bridging the Divide: Uniting Rural and Urban Landscapes for Conservation. The conference ran from July 28 -31 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

During this conference, the Southern New England Chapter was presented with a Chapter Achievement Award in recognition of significant achievements through a single activity conducted during the year. We were recognized for our Erosion & Sediment Control Fall Field Day Workshops.

At the conference, the President of the chapter Dr. Timothy Randhir presented papers on various soil and water conservation issues, including presentations on:

Soil and Water Conservation Society Southern New England Chapter
Soil and Water Conservation Society Southern New England Chapter

Treasurer of the chapter Ms. Christine Odiaga presented a poster on the Herring River Restoration Project (pictured below), which proposes to incrementally restore 1000+ acres of an estuary that has been severely degraded since the installation of a dike across the mouth of the tidal river in 1909.

Abstracts are available here.
