event_description: The Pennsylvania Chapter of Backcountry Hunters and Anglers and Western Pennsylvania Conservancy (WPC) are teaming up again on stream improvement projects. Join PA BHA as we partner with WPC Friday, May 3rd, 2024 to help with a stream restoration project at WPCs Brokenstraw Flats property in Warren County near State Game Land 143. The work will consist of harvesting and installing live stakes of willow and dogwood throughout a section of Brokenstraw Creek near Horn Siding, PA.Live Staking is a practice which reintroduces plant life directly in the places that need it most, the stream banks. It has a low cost and is something that landowners can do easily on their own property. Stem cuttings taken from trees during their dormant season (before the buds break in the spring) are inserted directly into stream banks. These cuttings, referred to as "live stakes," will eventually grow into new trees and are an effective way to establish a root network in the stream banks and help prevent further soil loss. Learn more at: https://extension.psu.edu/live-staking-for-stream-restorationWhat to Bring: Volunteers should dress for the weather, including waders or calf high rubber boots at the very least, and be prepared for periods of physical labor and hiking over rough/uneven terrain. Volunteers are welcome to bring their own hard hat, gloves, hand pruners, and or steel/rubber mallet. There will be a limited number of these available for those that need them the day of the event.Please bring lunch, snacks and a water bottle. Water will be provided.RSVP Required: If you plan to attend, please RSVP below and email event leader Samantha at the email below and let her know when you plan to come so we can staff appropriately and provision.
