January Updates

The BCC is proud to announce the approval for a River Access Grant. Thanks to all the hard work of our member Scott Rugh!! Much appreciated! We will be having a meeting at the Crow’s Nest this Wednesday the 28th at 7:00 to begin preparations for organization, and construction of the Foustwell river access on the Stonycreek Canyon. If interested in helping in planning, construction, or anything that can be brought to the table, come and join us.

     The Shade Creek Watershed Association needs help with water sampling. There are a few BCC members volunteering and anyone interested are welcome. Meeting Sunday Feb 1st at 11:00 am at the Central City Borough Building 314 Central ave. Central City PA. There will be lessons in the proper ways to get your samples, learn your designated test site and mo re. Sampling should only be a bi-weekly event. The meeting is plenty early enough to not interrupt Superbowl plans, so that excuse is not acceptable!!

 Keep an eye out for future Rendezvous plans. We always need help and the BIG planning meeting will take place on Feb 18th @ the Crows Nest, so please attend. Also Steve P has some VERY good news for the club!!
