CWC is looking for funds for a permanent easement and to restore riparian buffer zones along the waterway. More information can be obtained on the website

from the site:
Slab Cabin Run flows through the Meyer and Everhart farmland. This 11.2 mile stream flows from Tussey Mountain south of Pine Grove Mills, into Spring Creek and eventually feeds into the Susquehanna River and Chesapeake Bay. Slab Cabin Run is a degraded trout stream in need of restoration efforts. A portion of the stream flows through 21 acres of the Meyer property, making it possible for ClearWater to implement restoration efforts on the stream once the easement is in place.

In the Spring Creek watershed, limestone geology creates a strong interconnection between surface water and groundwater resources. Large springs consistently provide over 85% of the surface water we see flowing through Spring Creek and its tributaries, sustaining a thriving trout population. Recent studies have suggested that increases in impervious ground cover (such as parking lots, sidewalks, or roadways) directly impact coldwater fisheries. This can be attributed to precipitation being warmed before running off into our streams.

Update

CWC raised over 2.75 million to purchase easements on Slab Cabin Run. While plans have not been laid out, CWC has participated in riparian buffer restorations on upper spring creek and tribs to Spruce Creek. I assume they will not only secure the easement, but also improve riparian buffer zones.

A good way to thank the Meyers is to stop by the dairy and try their incredible ice cream- far better than the Creamery.

There are still treats upstream of this section, however. Specifically, the plan for Toll Bros to build high density housing just upstream of this area. http://www.centredaily.com/opinion/article161313413.html

Ain't that the truth.

Thanks for the update.

Agree.

Thanks for keeping us informed on this. PA has some excellent and dedicated local land conservancies that do some steller work protecting our resources and maintaning public access through easements.

I'm always up for ice cream, next time I'm up that way I'll stop by and thank them, then buy some ice cream.

Fished the stream earlier this week when I was in town. Caught a couple wild browns but saw many more, just like I remembered. Forgot to stop by Meyer though! I'm gonna have to get two cones next time now.
