UPCOMING CHAPTER EVENTS
Next Membership Meeting – Tuesday, August 28 at 5:30 PM
Our chapter meeting this month offers a rare opportunity for members to see firsthand how the Rausch Creek diversion wells function to neutralize acidity in the Stony Creek watershed. Located in State Game Lands #211, the original well was built and put into operation in 1987, with a second well added in 2000 to handle high water events. Weekly maintenance to ensure the wells’ proper performance is conducted year-round by a devoted group of chapter volunteers.
Please consider coming out on Tuesday, August 28 to enjoy a picnic dinner, followed by a drive on the Stony Creek Trail into the well site. We will meet at 5:30 in the parking lot adjacent to the northern gate of the trail, just west of Gold Mine Road. See https://www.dftu.org/wp-content/uploads/2011/07/Map-to-Div.Well_.pdf for directions. We would appreciate your contacting Russ Collins at 717-580-3958 or firstname.lastname@example.org by August 27 so that we can get a head count.
Looking forward to seeing you there!
