PENNSYLVANIA, McKean County CD – Rep. Martin Causer (R-Turtlepoint) announced Thursday the McKean County Conservation District will receive $50,000 in funding from the state Department of Agriculture to assist with two projects designed to control and eliminate infestations of invasive plant species in the region.

“The grant will be implemented in cooperation with the Allegheny Plateau Invasive Plant Management Area partnership, which is working as a five county collaborative to address invasive plants at a landscape level,” said Jody Groshek, communications & outreach director for the McKean County Conservation District.

“Non-native, invasive plants can cause serious problems for reforestation efforts and other environmental concerns,” Causer said. “I commend conservation district officials for their proactive efforts to eradicate these problems before they grow any worse.”

PENNSYLVANIA, Cambria County CD – Flood control is only one piece of the puzzle when it comes to the health of local waterways.

During its annual legislative meeting Friday at Kosta’s Restaurant in Ebensburg, the Cambria County Conservation District highlighted completion of projects to date in 2019 to restore streams that have flood control levee systems in place.

The restoration of those streams in Patton, Northern Cambria, Nanty Glo in Cambria County – along with Cherry Tree in Indiana County – is meant to center flowing water, take pressure off of banks to prevent erosion, create a natural ripple for fish and other aquatic life and keep sediment moving instead of depositing.
