Students and teachers studying aspects of the Delaware River Watershed shared research and stewardship initiatives on local watersheds as they networked and participated in educational seminars with other students and professionals during this three-day event.
The 2005 conference offered:
- Leadership Development
- Interactive Learning
- Field Trips

Schools sent teams of approximately six students to represent their watershed by conducting a 15-minute presentation and sharing an exhibit of their watershed research/action project.
One or more designated adults from the school district were in attendance and responsible for students at all times during the conference.
The primary sponsor of this event was the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR), Bureau of State Parks - Delaware River Watershed Education. The Delaware River Basin Commission (DRBC) was pleased to support this very worthwhile, educational program.
