DCNR Conservation & Natural Resources Advisory Council To Discuss Mock Drill Pad Restoration Project Nov. 28

DCNR’s Conservation and Natural Resources Advisory Council is scheduled to meet on November 28 to hear an update on mock well pad restoration research by the Bureau of Forestry in the Tiadaghton State Forest.
DCNR, in partnership with researchers at Penn State University, constructed a 1-acre mock well pad demonstration site in May of 2015 to better understand how Marcellus Shale well pad construction techniques impact the effectiveness of forest reclamation practices.
Ongoing data collection on the “mock well pad” will be used to test different techniques, seed mixes, and tree and shrub species survival.  (Click Here for a video on the research.)

Also on the agenda is DCNR’s regular report to the Council and a discussion of the committee’s recent trip to the Loyalsock Creek which was named River of the Year earlier in 2018.
The meeting will be held in Room 105 of the Rachel Carson Building in Harrisburg starting at 10:00 a.m.
For more information and available handouts, visit DCNR’s  Conservation and Natural Resources Advisory Council webpage.  Questions should be directed to  Gretchen Leslie, 717-772-9084 or send email to:
