The Warren County Conservation District is currently improving the hiking trails and replacing broken bridges in the 350-acre Hatch Run Conservation Demonstration Area.

The Western Pennsylvania Conservancy (WPC) is holding its annual river sojourn this summer on the scenic Allegheny River in Western Pennsylvania. On the river, WPC and its partners will provide educational and environmental demonstrations that speak directly to the intertwining of the rich ecological and cultural history of the Allegheny River while highlighting its recreational potential.
Though originally planed to be a two-day event, the WPC has gone back to the planning stage to reduce it to one day. Further details will be available here as they are available to us.
Since reporting on this matter last month Joan Swartz and I have met. Joan is working to bring this first-time event for Warren about. We have agreed to publicize the event and provide a link to the Warren 4th of July web site so that people can find it to register for the regatta. Also, assuming we have sufficient volunteers, we will be helping at the put-in and take-out sites. If you are willing to help please let me, John Shinaberger, know. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or 814-598-9094.
