Whether it’s planting trees along our streams, cleaning streams, building a rain garden,  or monitoring your local stream, participating in Schoharie Watershed month will give you the opportunity to protect, preserve, or restore our local waterways. Schoharie Watershed Month is a community- and family-oriented event that will provide a host of fun educational activities on water quality for the entire Mountaintop. Watershed Month activities and events will offer something for everyone. Please join us, host an event, pitch your idea to our committee, or volunteer to help.
