From regularly conducting stream cleaning, planting and restoration projects, canoe launch rehabilitation projects and implementing invasive species action plans that have made sightings of river otters, bald eagles, ospreys and herons a common occurrence along this major tributary of the Allegheny River, I want to personally congratulate everyone at the Conewango Creek Association for also receiving a leadership grant to move even more noteworthy conservation projects forward.”
