In our younger days Wags and I were climbers (he way more advanced than me). So when I saw a Zoom meeting titled, “Climbers for Bat Conservation in PA” I signed in. Dr Shawn K Davis of Parks, Conservation, and Recreational Therapy Department at Slippery Rock University (724-738-2599) lead the meeting.  In a nutshell, climbers are reporting in  when they see bats. Bats in crevices (you won’t believe how far back they can go), bats flying, bats where ever.  Biologist learn so much from these sightings that bats may have a rosier future ahead! Climbers are learning too and together there is now a gathering of information internationally. Find out more at CLIMBERS for Bat Conservation. Here’s a link to the ZOOM meeting!


Laurel Highlands Conservation Landscape Initiative

This is the latest newsletter from the Conservation Landscape Initiative, established about 2010 by PA DCNR to help small communities in the planning of conservation efforts in their area. As we are are striving to keep our natural resources intact and improve the area in the Laurel Highlands we thought this would be good information. Newsletter talks about effects of natural gas drilling, Stoney Creek, and more.
