Watershed Specialist

Lebanon Valley Conservation District

The Conservation District Watershed Specialist Program was formed in 2000 with the understanding that “a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world.” This quote from Margaret Mead continues to serve as inspiration for the passionate and dedicated individuals who serve throughout Pennsylvania as Watershed Specialists.

The Watershed Specialist is tasked with a variety of responsibilities but the essence of the position remains true to its original focus of enabling communities to affect positive change in water quality. This purpose is most commonly accomplished through securing state, federal, and private grants to implement water quality restoration projects, acting as a liaison between watershed groups and various state agencies, and assisting the public in finding local solutions to local environmental problems, along with educating on the importance of improving water quality. The Watershed Specialist will also interact with the agricultural community by conducting Chesapeake Bay inspections, Agricultural Land Preservation inspections, and assisting producers with manure management planning.

If you feel you have the dedication, desire, personality, hard work ethic, and skills to complement our accomplished staff, we’d love to hear from you.
