The Watershed Coalition of the Lehigh Valley is dedicated to keeping the region’s streams clean and healthy. We do this in a number of ways. We help the volunteers working on water and natural resource projects. We support outreach and education efforts, and share tools and resources critical to healthy streams in the Valley. At our monthly meetings, we gather to exchange information and keep the community informed. The Coalition is a non-profit organization, and works to enhance the efforts of the local watershed associations in the Lehigh Valley.

The Watershed Coalition of the Lehigh Valley gathers all the local watershed associations and conservation organizations in the Lehigh Valley for information and resource sharing, outreach and education, and the design and building of on-the-ground projects. Come join us for a meeting to learn more! Check our our Facebook page for up-to-date announcements, events, and projects.

The Watershed Coalition of the Lehigh Valley was born out of a reorganization of the Green Valley Coalition, a non-profit organized in the late 1990’s by a group of concerned citizens working to advocate for green infrastructure and smart development. In 2009, the Green Valley Coalition Board voted to rename the group, and shift its focus to water and natural resource conservation. We meet monthly, usually at Illick’s Mill in Bethlehem, at 5:00 pm on the first Wednesday of the month. Special meetings dates and times are announced on our website and our Facebook page.
