Update on Kline Road project
& call for volunteers
KLINE ROAD PROJECT UPDATE AND CALL FOR VOLUNTEERS
For over a year now you’ve been hearing about the stream improvement project on Penns Creek along Kline Road near the Spring Mills Sewage Treatment Plant. The Penns Valley Conservation Association has partnered with the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the Centre County Conservation District, and Gregg Township to place a 600 foot mudsill (the longest mudsill in Pennsylvania!) on the severely undercut and eroded west bank of Penns Creek, construct four multi-vein deflectors, and install fencing and develop a riparian buffer on adjacent properties.
We've asked you to stay tuned for a schedule and we now have one to share with you. We’ve been procuring and stockpiling stone and logs needed for the construction, and equipment is scheduled to be on the site on Monday, August 24th, 2009. We still need and will accept monetary contributions and donations of materials (rebar, jute mat, straw mulch) but now that the actual construction is about to begin, we would like to compile a list of volunteers who can help with the actual physical labor of laying the mudsill, seeding the buffer, and planting shrubs and trees. Work will begin on August 24th and continue until completion. If you can spare a few hours, please contact us for the opportunity to become a Penns Valley conservation hero.
Volunteers to work on the project please contact Watershed Committee Member George Kelly at email@example.com or call 814-571-5387. George Kelly or Tom Doman, PVCA Watershed Committee Chair: firstname.lastname@example.org can be contacted concerning donations of materials, and monetary contributions can be sent to PVCA.
Thank you in advance for any help you can provide in bringing this worthwhile project to fruition.
