Lititz Watershed Cleanup is scheduled for this Saturday. Once again we will be doing stream cleanup along the Wetlands Farm stretch of the Run, as well as planting trees on this project. Since fishing is not allowed on this water, this is a great opportunity to see it for yourself and possibly see some rising fish.. Contact Greg Wilson if you can help.

Here's something different. Last Fall Lancaster Conservancy, in cooperation with Millersville University and a wide assortment of naturalists and enthusiasts, conducted a BioBlitz in an effort to catalogue as many of the species present in the Preserve as possible. In all they catalogued over 500. Now they've scheduled a second round to address those species which were not present or identifiable in the Fall. Come along to help or just to observe this unique event. Here's a flyer. Contact Greg Wilson for more information.
