Thanks and congratulation to Garrett Strittmatter, soon to be an Eagle Scout. His project will help improve the habit for young fish, including those stocked by PA Fish and Game at Yellow Creek Park. Eagle Scout candidates, propose, design, raise funds and implement projects. This project was welcomed by Park Manager Jim Tweardy, and the Friends of Yellow Creek was pleased to be able to provide funding for the materials.
The structure, which replace or augment those installed decades past, help young fish to hide out from larger predators. The construction of the lake back in 1969 stripped the bottom of the variations which would ordinarily provide natural shelter for fish fry.
Thanks Garrett. And thanks to the members and donors to Friends of Yellow Creek. Your support makes it possible for FOYC to fund such projects.
