Canoe/Kayak Poker Run Refunds!

Yesterday morning at 7:00 a.m., the Canoe/Kayak Poker Run had been rescheduled to May 31st due to the rainy weather conditions. At 10:00 a.m., it was decided that since the weather had improved, the Poker Run would still be on for the day. We are aware that this caused some confusion and there are registrants who did not make it and need refunds.

If you are one of the registrants who needs a refund, please call in to The Foxburg Inn Hotel at (724)659-3116 so we can get your information regarding your refund.

These will be done this week!

Herp Hike @ Mineral Springs

Join in on the Herp Hike (salamanders) being led by Dr. Kurt Regester at the beautiful Mineral Springs, Saturday, May 16th from 2-4 PM in Emlenton. As you stroll through the woods, you will be searching for and identifying different species of salamanders.

Dr. Kurt Regester is a professor at Clarion University. He teaches in the Department of Biology and his areas of interest include wildlife ecology, ornithology, population biology, and amphibian ecology including herpetology. 

Ever since 1867 the beautiful Mineral Springs has had the oldest oil producing well in the United States. The oil industry caused environmental woes in the region, but this popular park bounced back to a very healthy state. The pristine habitat supports a plentiful grove of Hemlock trees, acidic loving plants, and a trout stream housing a rich amphibian population.
