Building Leaders: Creating Our Future
Funded by LWVPA-CEF WREN Project - Ground Water and Wellhead Protection Grants- 1995 & 1996

In Juniata and Fulton counties, the issue of groundwater policy was the overarching teaching theme of the "Building Leaders: Creating Our Future" program sponsored by Penn State Cooperative Extension. A series of five meetings was held in McConnellsburg and Mifflintown over a ten month period. The Leadership programs were based on the Master Gardener format and trained citizens in groundwater science, federal, state and local groundwater policies, opportunities for local action, and strategies and techniques for local public policy development.
In Fulton County the program was co-sponsored by the Chamber of Commerce and the Conservation District; in Juniata County the Conservation District and the Mid-State Resource Conservation and Development Council cooperated. As a follow-up, in Juniata County a Groundwater Council will be established in 1997.
