The Montour Run Watershed Association organized this mornings clean up (Rad Up Your Watershed) along Montour Run Creek with Allegheny County Airport Authority (ACAA) & Reel Fish’n. 13 volunteers braved the rain and helped collect 10+ bags worth of garbage and loose big items. I contacted the watershed group a week ago about organizing a stream clean up on Montour Run this coming spring (2019). Mark and Kevin responding about this Rad Up your Watershed event that they were doing today. Why start later, lets start now… So I met up with them this morning along with Chris & Samantha.
Montour Run has a special place in our the RF Teams heart being one of the local water ways we grew up fishing. Its a great stream that has convenient access to the creek from the montour trail. Thanks for the Montour Creek Watershed Association the water quality over the past 10 years has improved significantly. The water way has done so well that the PA Fish and Boat Commission stocks it with trout each year in the spring.
Look for more information coming with how to get involved with this group. Hope to see you at the next clean up in the spring!
