Susquehanna TU Hosts Lycoming College Stream Assessment Team and Picnic

The Susquehanna Chapter of Trout Unlimited will be hosting a special meeting and picnic on Wednesday, September 14th at 5:30 pm. Dr. Mel Zimmerman and biology students from Lycoming College will be performing a field demonstration of electroshocking and other methods of inventorying aquatic life and classifying the quality of flowing streams used in the PA Fish & Boat Commission Unassessed Waters Initiative. The initiative has been instrumental in designating over 12,000 miles in over 500 streams in the past five years as wild trout streams which creates additional regulatory protections for those exceptional value streams. The public is invited to see how the assessments are conducted and join in a picnic after the demonstration (hot dogs, chips and drinks will be supplied- please bring a covered dish or dessert). The meeting will be held at Waterdale Lodge in Mosquito Valley. Turn south on Valley Street at the Turkey Hill mini mart at Euclid Ave. in Duboistown and proceed 0.6 miles to Mosquito Valley Road. Turn left on Mosquito Valley Road, go 0.9 miles to Waterdale Road; bear right on Waterdale Road toward the Armstrong Township Building and go west 0.75 miles to the gate at Waterdale where there will be parking.
