Landowners and residents of Gibson Township and parts of Ararat, Herrick, Jackson, Thompson, Harford and Lenox Townships are invited to become a part of a community defined, not by municipal borders but by the tops of hills. The Upper Tunkhannock Creek Watershed Association announces its organizational meeting Thursday, January 9, at the Gibson Township Building, Route 92. The fledgling organization will adopt bylaws and elect its initial board of directors.
Rob Parker, watershed specialist with the Endless Mountains Resources Conservation & Development committee (RC&D) and Mike Villanella, watershed specialist with the Susquehanna County Conservation District will be on hand to guide the group through the process and answer any questions. A watershed map will help define the natural boundaries of the community. Attendees will see slides of local wildlife.
What is a watershed? It is the stream, creek or river, and every place that drains into it. It stretches from mountain top to mountain top or hilltop to hilltop. Drive down Route 92 from North Jackson to Jackson, Gelatt, South Gibson, Lenox, Glenwood, Nicholson to Route 6. Youve been in the Tunkhannock Creek Watershed all the way, following the creek, crossing its tributaries. Take any side road into the hills past homes, farms, woods, quarries. These are all part of the watershed. Drive over the top and downhill. Youre in the next watershed, another tributary of the Tunkhannock Creek. The tributaries, the feeder streams, like branches of a tree, connect to form ever larger streams. The Tunkhannock Creek joins the Susquehanna River, which flows into the Chesapeake Bay.
The Association is open to all interested residents and landowners within the boundaries of the watershed.
