An Invitation to you from North Pocono CARE…North Pocono CARE received a grant from the ColdwaterHeritage Partnership to study potential impacts of the PPLtransmission line on Ash Creek, a tributary to the LehighRiver located in Clifton Township, Lackawanna County.The Coldwater Heritage Partnership is a joint effort of thePennsylvania Fish & Boat Commission, the PennsylvaniaDepartment of Conservation and Natural Resources, thePennsylvania Council of Trout Unlimited, and theFoundation for Pennsylvania Watersheds.Our Coldwater Heritage Conservation Plan for Ash Creek wasapproved. The study results show no significant differences inwater chemistry or aquatic life upstream or downstream of thetransmission line right-of-way at this time, but there was a 1degree C increase in water temperature downstream in thesummer months. The loss of shade has impacted thiscoldwater stream and cold water is important for brook trout.As a result, we have arranged with PPL and the GameCommission to plant American elderberry and greydogwood in the riparian corridor on Saturday, April 21st,with a rain date of April 28th.We will meet at the Clifton Beach Road Game Commissionparking lot at noon. This is a volunteer effort and you andyour families are welcome to join. Lunch and water will beprovided. Call Joan Halle 570-842-9120 [email protected] to rsvp.
