Making rain gardens
BWA has been busy creating rain gardens, with help from a National Fish and Wildlife Foundation grant and many volunteers -- including Pat Bixler's Environmental Studies class at work, left, planting a rain garden at East Stroudsburg High School South.
Our rain garden projects continue with this amazing transformation of land near Retro Fitness in Stroud Township (right).

Green Infrastructure project
Let's clean up the Brodhead
BWA battles fecal coliform in local creeks
Brodhead Watershed Association has proof of bacteria and pollution in the Brodhead, Pocono and McMichael creeks in Stroudsburg, East Stroudsburg and Stroud Township from a study done in the summer of 2014. Condensing all that data into a campaign for the public, BWA says: “Please don’t feed the ducks.”
To capture attention where waterfowl are most likely to be fed, 12 signs — four in each municipality — have been placed on the banks of the creeks.
