Lehigh and Northampton County Master Watershed Stewards presents a fun, informative series of presentations on water quality topics.

These workshops are scheduled at various locations around the Lehigh Valley and highlight presentations by local water resource professionals and Penn State Extension Master Watershed Steward volunteers.

The programs are typically scheduled for one and a half hours; however, time varies among presenters and venues.

The next TapTalk presentation is Greening Your Landscape and MS4 Requirements, set for 6:30-8 p.m. Jan. 9 at Taylor House Brewing Company, 76 Lehigh St., Catasauqua. Nathan Pritchard from Northampton County Conservation District is the presenter.
