The Future of PACE for New Jersey’s Municipalities
Free webinar 11 a.m. – Noon. 
PACE represents a multi-billion dollar opportunity for New Jersey. New Jersey already has PACE legislation, but with deficiencies that need to be corrected before the program can be implemented effectively. Amending legislation to facilitate PACE, and extend it to cover resiliency improvements such as hurricane- and flood-proofing, has been in the works for nearly three years, and was passed by overwhelming majorities in both houses of the NJ legislature this past June. On November 9, the Christie Administration issued a conditional veto that would have made the program even less viable than before. While we're still looking at the options available to get an effective program approved, we are more than ever convinced that PACE will come to New Jersey in the not-too-distant future. Our December 15 webinar will discuss this future, and what we can do in the meantime to get more projects financed and moving forward. In this free webinar on December 15 from 11 am to 12 noon, you will learn: What PACE is, and its track record in states across the USA; Why PACE is important to you, your community, and NJ; PACE's status (A2579) and the Governor’s Conditional Veto; Actions we are taking, and How you can help us get PACE working in NJ. The webinar will be useful for municipalities, energy services contractors, property owners and developers, community development groups, financial organizations, and nonprofits. David Gabrielson, Executive Director of PACENation, the national nonprofit, and a long-time municipal councilperson in New York will join NJPACE's executive team for the webinar.  Read more and RSVP here

Our Creeks and Rivers Under Siege!!
Rock snot, exotic mussels, and other unpleasant, unwelcome watery guests!
Penn State Extension, the Watershed Coalition of the Lehigh Valley, and the Appalachian Mountain Club are hosting a free workshop on aquatic invasive species, presented by Sarah Whitney from the Pennsylvania Sea Grant, on Wednesday, December 16 at 6:30 p.m. at Illick’s Mill in Bethlehem (100 Illick’s Mill Road).  Aquatic invasive species are species found outside their natural geographic range that cause ecological or economic harm, or harm to human health.  Aquatic invasive species can be spread by human activities, such as boating, angling, and water gardening, to name a few.  Preventing the introduction and spread of aquatic invasives should be a top priority in Pennsylvania as the state has more than 84,000 miles of streams, 77 miles of Great Lakes shoreline and many inland lakes, and shares five major watersheds with other states and Canada.  In this talk, Sarah will present information about species of concern in Pennsylvania and highlight the steps boaters, anglers, and others can take to prevent the introduction and spread of harmful species.   For more information, contact Penn State Extension, Lehigh County, at 610-391-9840.
