Clearfield, Erie and Lancaster Cooperative Agreements
This cooperative effort provides assistance in delivering on-the-ground habitat for wildlife. Restoration projects typically include stream bank fencing, riparian corridor enhancements, building low earthen berms, some soil excavation, and removal of drain tile. Additional habitat restoration will be accomplished by planting trees, shrubs, and different grass species. Fish and wildlife habitat will be restored where wetlands were drained.
The project sites are as followed:
- Kelly Run Stream Restoration, Erie County $20,000
- Crooked Creek Stream Restoration, Blair County $15,000
- Tipton Run Stream Restoration, Blair County $15,000
- Bald Eagle Creek Stream Restoration, York County $10,000
- State Game Lands 120 Wetland Restoration, Clearfield County $10,000
- West Branch Conestoga Dam Removal, Lancaster County $18,000
Monitoring of the projects helps the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the Wildlife For Everyone Foundation by providing valuable information that will be used for future projects. The biggest benefit will be clean water and better habitat for fish and wildlife.
