Lower Allen Township, recognizing the need
for a Yellow Breeches watershed group, applied for and received a Growing
Greener grant to assist in the
formation of the Yellow Breeches Watershed Association. The 219 square
mile watershed includes Adams, Cumberland and York counties with 21
municipalities and approximately 368 stream miles. An initial stakeholders
meeting was held on January 10, 2001 and people interested in serving on the
initial Steering Committee volunteered. The first public meeting was held
on February 21, 2001. An initial Board of Directors meeting was held a few months later. Articles of incorporation were prepared and filed
with the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and Internal Revenue Service.
