Headwaters: A Bold New Vision for the Ohio River Watershed 

In many ways, the Ohio River is an unsung resource. The Ohio’s near-thousand-mile course flows through Pennsylvania and five other states before emptying into the Mississippi. It’s a source of drinking water for millions people. But its long legacy as a “working river” has also made it the most polluted in the country. Those living along its banks are now beginning to realize that reimagining their relationship with the river could prove crucial to the region’s future.

Join us for a discussion about the future of the Ohio River watershed.

Keynote: Collin O'Mara, President and CEO of National Wildlife Federation

Panel Discussion:

  • Kristy Meyer, Managing Director of Natural Resources, Ohio Environmental Council
  • Richard Harrison, Executive Director, Ohio River Valley Sanitation Commission
  • Vivien Li, President and CEO, Riverlife

Complimentary hors d’oeuvres and beverages provided.

Hosted by The Allegheny Front to celebrate the launch of their new podcast, Headwaters exploring what this new chapter in the river’s history could look like — and how we can get there.
