Last week we celebrated Mr. Edward Vogel Sr.’s 41 years of service on the Adams Township Board of Supervisors. Mr. Vogel received honors from both Representative Stephenie Scialabba’s office as well as Senator Elder Vogels Office. As a sign of appreciation for Edwards many years of service, the Board of Supervisors has decided to rename the schoolhouse at Adams Township Community Park the Edward L Vogel Sr. School house. We are so grateful for his many years on the board and look forward to building on all of that hard work for years to come.

The Connoquenessing Watershed Alliance is a grass-roots, volunteer group of individuals, groups and businesses that are concerned about issues in our local watershed that could affect water quality. Since our inception in 1999, the CWA has been active in water testing, riparian buffer restoration, and educational activities throughout the watershed. As time has passed, our group’s focus has shifted towards in-stream habitat improvement projects, primarily in the Sullivan Run and Thorn Creek sub-watersheds to date. Partnering with numerous local, state, and federal groups has allowed the CWA to install over 125 instream habitat improvement devices, along with 3,000 feet of Large Woody Debris, to create model fish habitat and riparian areas to benefit all wildlife and water quality. The last several years has seen the group undertake a large citizen science project, focused around the use of our stream improvements by stocked rainbow trout. These results have been shared with numerous government agencies, as this is the first time a study of this magnitude has been conducted to document actual returns on the substantial investments in these projects.
CWA meetings are always open to the public, and we welcome new members with a concern for maintaining the health of our local waterways. The next meeting of the Alliance will take place on Monday, October 16, 2023 at 6 PM at the Butler County Conservation District office. Additional information is available at our website, www.connoqwatershed.org, or by following us on Facebook at Connoquenessing Watershed Alliance.
