The conference is an opportunity for grassroots conservation organizations, environmental professionals, college faculty and students to share ideas and concepts, and to network to protect, conserve, and restore Pennsylvania’s coldwater resources.

Four Clarion students presented three posters outlining their research in stream ecology:

– Alicia Ramsey, of Brookville, a December 2017 graduate with a degree in biology, placed third for her poster showing research on “Temporal Attenuation of Abandoned Mine Drainage within the Mill Creek Watershed.”

– Sean Harlan, of New Castle, a junior environmental biology major placed first for his poster showing research on “Development of a Fish IBI to Evaluate the Biological Integrity of the Shenango River.”

– Tanner Harris and Sierra Andres, both of Oil City and junior environmental biology majors, placed second for their poster showing research on “Predicting the Consequences of Removing Multiple Dams from a Small Watershed.”

Conference host was Pennsylvania Council of Trout Unlimited and sponsors were Shenango River Watchers, the Iron Furnace Chapter of Trout Unlimited, and the Mill Creek Coalition.
