The Coalition

The Watershed Coalition of the Lehigh Valley grew out of the work of the Green Valley Coalition, a group of involved stakeholders who joined forces in the late 1990’s to advocate on behalf of smart growth and natural resource conservation in the Lehigh Valley. In 2010, the Board of the Green Valley Coalition made the decision to reorganize the group to create an umbrella coalition representing all the community-based Watershed Associations. The mission of the Watershed Coalition of the Lehigh Valley is to preserve and enhance the watersheds of the Lehigh Valley. The Coalition pursues its mission through outreach and education, resource and information sharing, and advocacy on key issues critical to regional water resource health.
