Stream Stewardship Workshop Set In Mount Joy, Lancaster County June 13 & 20

The Penn State Agriculture and Environment Center is partnering with Mount Joy Borough in Lancaster county to offer Stream Stewardship Workshop June 13 at the Milanof-Schock Library and June 20 at Little Chiques Park in Mount Joy.
The two-part workshop begins June 13 at 6:30 p.m., at the Milanof-Schock Library, 1184 Anderson Ferry Road, Mount Joy.   Click Here to register.
Landowners with streamside property and other interested adults will hear a presentation by the AEC on streams, wildlife habitat, and pollution issues, along with simple actions we can all take to improve our local water quality.
On June 20 at 6:30 p.m. the workshop moves outside to Little Chiques Park, 229 Park Ave., Mount Joy where participants can get their feet wet while exploring the aquatic environment.  Click Here to register.
This event is family friendly and attendees are encouraged to bring kids and grandkids for this evening of discovery.
The workshop will feature an easy to use, science-in-your-yard tool called First Investigation of Stream Health (FISH).
This tool, originally developed by the AEC and its Conewago Creek Initiative partners, allows citizen scientists to record observations of their streams to help judge its health and to show signs of improvement once a restoration project has been completed.
It is available in paper copy or as a smartphone app. Click Here to learn more.
To register, visit the Milanof-Schock Library’s Events webpage.
