Congratulations to CBF’s Pennsylvania office, 2010
PISCES Award Winner!
This past fall, CBF was given a PISCES award from the
U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for demonstrating
how cooperation, planning, and clearly established goals
can facilitate the implementation of broad-scale improve-
ments aimed at non-point-source pollution. CBF’s
Pennsylvania office partnered with 44 farms throughout
the state, private agricultural businesses, and county con-
servation district offices, to implement best management
practices (BMPs), or conservation-related projects on
farms. The projects were completed through a $14.9 mil-

2009 (ARRA) grant. It was the execution of this large-
scale effort and expanded partnership effort that made
CBF a clear winner.
