Lower Allen Township, recognizing the need for a Yellow Breeches watershed group, applied for and received a Growing Greener grant to assist in the formation of the Yellow Breeches Watershed Association.  The 219 square mile watershed includes Adams, Cumberland and York counties with 21 municipalities and approximately 368 stream miles.  An initial stakeholders meeting was held on January 10, 2001 and people interested in serving on the initial Steering Committee volunteered.  The first public meeting was held on February 21, 2001.  An initial Board of Directors meeting was held a few months later.  Articles of incorporation were prepared and filed with the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and Internal Revenue Service.

Hog Island (Maine) Ornithology Camp Scholarship Opportunity through Appalachian Audubon Society: link here

Designed for ages 14*-17 only, this intensive 6-day, 5-night program on Hog Island (Muscongus Bay, Maine) allows enthusiastic young birders to work with some of the country's best-known birders and ornithologists on field identification, bird ecology and conservation. Occurring concurrently with the adult Field Ornithology and Hands-on Bird Science sessions, and sharing many of the same instructors, this program includes the unique opportunity to see Audubon's Seabird Restoration work in action, and is the only Hog Island program that lands participants on Eastern Egg Rock during the puffin breeding season (weather and sea conditions permitting).
For questions regarding the program, registration, lodging or meals, contact the Audubon Camp program director at hogisland@audubon.org or (843) 340-8673. Additional information about accommodations can be found on the Lodging and Frequently Asked Questions, pages on Hog Island's Website.
