The Aquashicola Pohopoco Watershed Conservation was organized in 2002.  Volunteers monitor 20 different sites for water quality, participate in stream clean-ups, roadside clean-ups, and share their knowledge and experience with others.  We meet 6 times a year at the Polk Township Municipal Building (165 Polk Township Rd. PO Box 137. Kresgeville, PA 18333) where we get together to  plan educational and community events  to be held throughout the year, report on water quality and monitor for threats of pollution, engage in improvement plans such as planting riparian barriers to protect runoff into the streams,  and most of all -- enjoy time with other members who appreciate and value our watershed.  Check out the Newsletter for upcoming dates.  Better yet, subscribe to the newsletter so you can keep in touch with us and be updated with our latest events.
