Oneida Reservoir Cleanup

Come join the CWA as we work with Pennsylvania American Water and the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission to clean the shores of Oneida Reservoir. The cleanup will take place on Saturday, March 30, starting at 9 AM at the Hohn Road bridge crossing the upper portion of the lake. Safety vests, work gloves and trash bags will be provided as this event is registered with the Great Pennsylvania Cleanup.

Catfish Release Day

Save the date – Saturday, April 27, 2019 will be the Catfish Release Day and Family Fishing Festival at Glade Run Lake. More information to come but it promises to be a fun event!

March Meeting

The March meeting of the CWA will take place on Tuesday, March 5, 2019 at 6 pm at the Penn State Cooperative Extension office at Sunnyview Home. Lots of topics to be covered including a clean-up, riparian buffer plantings, Glade Run catfish day, and the restoration projects for this summer.

Riparian Buffer Planting

The CWA partnered with the Butler Area School District to plant 150 live stakes of native tree and shrub species at the Thorn Creek Habitat Improvement Project.  Students from the Butler Intermediate High School researched the tree species for plantings, and installed them as part of the Fisheries Science course at school.

Thorn Creek Project

It looks like the project survived the recently flooding well, with some tree movement in between devices.  As the water receded, we’ll check for any needed repairs.

June Meeting

The June Meeting of the CWA will be held on Tuesday, June 5, 2018 at 6 PM at the Penn State Cooperative Extension Office building.  This will be the annual membership meeting, and dues will be collected and officers elected for the upcoming year.  Also, the latest information about the Thorn Creek habitat project for this year will be discussed.
