Upper Allegheny River Basin Workshop
I have been involved with a workshop sponsored by the Nature Conservancy and NYS Department of Environmental Conservation for the past two days. They have brought together many scientist, universities, governmental partners and natural resource professionals to assist in putting together an in-depth conservation action plan for the Upper Allegheny River Basin. This was the third of four workshops scheduled for completing this action plan. This workshop was focused on helping develop some broad strategies determined in previous workshops for multiple critical threats from the Upper Allegheny Basin. Back in April 2006, they had the first workshop and kicked everything off by bringing everyone together for the Allegheny Biodiversity Symposium. I presented an oral paper on the Changing Butterfly Fauna in Allegany State Park and one of 50 papers/posters presented that day. I felt honored to be involved in this important long-term conservation plan for the Allegheny River System and can’t wait to see their finished product.
Many of the workshop participants!
BTW: caught 2 Northern Saw-whet Owls last night!
