Heth’s Run Walk – Monday May 9 at 6 pm – and PWSA survey

The PWSA’s Heth’s Run Watershed is hosting a Watershed Walk on May 9 at 6 pm.  The walk will be led by Highland Park CDC President David Hance. If you aren’t familiar with it, this is the valley between Highland Park and Morningside that includes the zoo parking lot. There was a public engagement process about 15 years ago that resulted in a hope of adding trails so that (1)  it is accessible from the park and (2) connects the park with the waterfront (which will one day have a trail and public space) through the zoo parking lot.

The group will meet at the far end of the zoo parking lot; see the attached map. Please register for the walk here:  http://support.pittsburghparks.org/site/Calendar?id=101921&view=Detail

PWSA Survey: PWSA is currently developing a Stormwater Strategic Plan.  As a part of the planning process, the consulting team is working with Ambassadors and is currently collecting surveys from target watershed communities.  This is an important opportunity to share your feedback related to stormwater management priorities in your community.
