Conodoguinet Creek Watershed Assn. Hosts 30th Anniversary Celebration Aug. 28 In Carlisle

The Conodoguinet Creek Watershed Association is holding a 30th anniversary celebration on August 28 to showcase its new interactive map and video project-- A Long Way With Many Bends.

The project is a visual story of Pennsylvania's Conodoguinet Creek and Watershed, the Conodoguinet Creek Water Trail and the Conodoguinet Creek Watershed Association.

“A Long Way with Many Bends,” includes educational materials about the region’s waters, geology and agriculture, and it highlights stunning images taken from the air and interviews with people working on the ground to protect, preserve and promote the watershed.

The project was lead by Dr. Scott Drzyzga, GIScience Director, Center for Land Use and Sustainability at Shippensburg University

The digital story map is the cumulative result of 30 years of CCWA-inspired watershed partnerships and another product of 150 years of high-quality student learning experiences at Shippensburg University.

The Conodoguinet Creek flows 104.5 miles from the Kittatinny Ridge, down the Cumberland Valley and into the Susquehanna River near Harrisburg. The creek meanders through small towns and agricultural lands and the lower section includes a popular recreational trail.

The creek watershed is the fifth-largest water-channeling area in the Susquehanna River Basin and a part of the greater Chesapeake Bay Watershed.

The celebration will be held at the Cumberland County Conservation District Office, 310 Allen Road in Carlisle from 1:30 to 2:30.  Please RSVP to Lisa by sending email to:
