On August 3, 2023, EC spent the day with North Branch Land Trust and WeConservePA, talking with local legislators about the importance of environmental funding to our ability to repair and conserve lands in the Commonwealth. Two of the excursions: the Huntsville Reservoir in Dallas Borough and Espy Run in Hanover Township. Both have required strong, continuous partnerships. They also required investments through programs like the PA Department of Conservation and Natural Resources‘ C2P2 program and the PA Department of Environmental Protection‘s Growing Greener program. We can’t emphasize enough how critical these resources are. Shown in photos, L to R: 1.) Introduction by Brad Barkdoll (at center) to WeConservePA; 2.)
