On Feb. 12, OR&R’s Simeon Hahn and NOAA’s Bart Merrick from the Chesapeake Bay Office helped lead a workshop aimed at connecting local environmental educators to NOAA’s expertise in science, policy, and work in urban ecosystems. 

The workshop, held in partnership with Stroud Water Research Center and the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources fostered conversations about urban ecosystems, environmental justice, and the importance of inclusivity in resilience initiatives. 

OR&R’s Simeon Hahn spoke about social, economic, and environmental topics in an urban river community and the Urban Water Federal partnership effort in the Delaware River. He also discussed NOAA’s efforts in Northeast Wilmington and the Brandywine River.
