|Another quick video comes from PPFF Marci this week. But who are we fooling? The real star of the thing is Izzy Dog. She's a great - and responsible - hiker. (Both Izzy and Marci.) Give a click and learn more.
While we're on the subject of videos, the Pennsylvania Lumber Museum has a great one on the Civilian Conservation Corps, just posted, featuring PPFF member John Eastlake. John is a CCC historian, absolutely determined to make sure that we do not forget the contributions of the Boys. Thank you, John!
Reminder: The Pennsylvania DCNR Bureau of Forestry is in the process of writing a new Strategic Plan that will set the bureau’s mission and overarching goals. It guides how the Bureau provides leadership in forest management and conservation on both public and private lands in urban and rural areas. The survey linked below is intended to obtain input pertaining to the new Bureau of Forestry Strategic Plan. Please feel free to forward the link to this survey to others. Opinions about these critical strategic questions will prove valuable in the planning process. The survey should take approximately 10 minutes to complete. The survey link will remain active until August 31, 2020. This is the website for the survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/BOFplan
The Endangered Species Coalition invited you to a virtual speaker series to spotlight regions and habitats throughout Pennsylvania which are recognized as existing or potential wildlife corridors.
This coming Monday, July 13th at 7pm via Zoom the subject is “A different type of corridor”. Explore what happens when wildlife corridors are fractured by roads, pipelines, transmission lines, and other similar man-made structures. Dan Lynch, Wildlife Education Specialist and Deputy Game Warden in south-eastern Pennsylvania, and Lillie Langlois, PhD from the Department of Ecosystem Science and Management at Penn State will discuss how these human creations in areas of extensive natural habitat impact different species and ecological groups.
