The Western Pennsylvania Conservancy's mission is to save the places we care about by connecting people to the natural world. How can that be done with the aid of GIS? At the Watershed Assistance Center, we build those connections using planning, assessments, restoration projects, outreach, and education. We partner with conservation organizations, watershed associations, and local and state governments. All of these activities involve GIS. Watershed Conservation Plans involve spatial analysis and figure production. ArcPad is used in the field as we perform stream assessments, study the impacts of abandoned mine drainage or agriculture, or analyze the condition of a watershed. We have used GIS and GPS technologies to teach everyone from grade-schoolers to senior citizens about watershed conservation. GIS plays an integral role in what we do at the Watershed Center; learn ways your non-profit can use GIS to further your mission.
