Water wonders

When water is scarce, when wells run dry and rivers run low, we are reminded of the essential value of this irreplaceable natural resource.

Volunteers constructed 20 porcupine cribs to be placed in Lake Wallenpaupack to improve fish habitat. As seen at the bottom left, cement blocks were added at the base of each structure to keep it submerged.

Porcupine cribs for fish

On September 12, volunteers assisted the Lake Wallenpaupack Watershed Management District (LWWMD) and the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission’s (PFBC) Habitat Division in constructing and installing structures meant to improve fish habitat in Lake Wallenpaupack, the popular man-made Wayne and Pike County Pennsylvania lake built in the 1920s.
