Ruffed Grouse and American Woodcock Society Volunteers and Army Corp of Engineers Plans Alder Renewal for Wildlife at Tionesta Lake on Saturday, 4/1
Tionesta, Pa.: Mark Saturday, 4/1, on your calendar if you want to help create wildlife habitat at Tionesta Lake. Volunteers are needed.
No special skills are needed by volunteers to help on this project – come on out and help pile cuttings to create brush piles for wildlife! If volunteers are willing to help on this project, please contact Jed Hamberger at firstname.lastname@example.org because we need to know what kind and how many of tools to bring to support the volunteer effort.
The meeting spot will be the parking lot of the Mt. Zion Lutheran Church at 2048 German Hill Road, Tionesta, 16353. Volunteers should be at the parking lot by 10:00 a.m. and plan on two to three hours of work. We will caravan to the alder site from the parking lot. Please contact Jed if you want to help wildlife on this project, but cannot make the tentative dates, because we have a retired person willing to meet volunteers for a work day outside of a Saturday. Park staff and RGS Volunteers will be available to answer any questions.
The project day in March was supported by volunteers from a local outdoor club, the NE Ohio Chapter of the American Woodcock Society, and four Chapters of the Ruffed Grouse Society: French Creek, Greater Pittsburgh, Neshannock, and Upland Bird Hunt Chapters.
Woodcock, ruffed grouse, warblers, rabbits, mice, voles, bobcats, and fox all use the habitat created by an alder thicket. As alder grows and gets too old, it starts to ‘lay down’ and roots will decay. But, a simple and proven wildlife habitat management technique of stump cutting will remove the older stems and put abundant sunlight back on the ground and cut stump, and cause the alder to put up abundant new growth. This new growth will provide habitat for many birds and small mammals over the next thirty years after the stump cutting.
The alder renewal process involves volunteers working in teams of three. One person with all the required safety equipment will operate a chainsaw to cut stumps that are one to five inches in diameter. A second person piles brush and uses loppers to cut stumps less than one inch in size. A third volunteer piles brush. Alder will be cut within an area of 30 feet square adjacent to a user-created trail through the thicket. Boots, jackets, gloves, and hats will be required of volunteers. The Ruffed Grouse Society will furnish any needed equipment.

Penn College golf tee time near
ON THE HORIZON:
After a fall season that saw his team take one first- and two second-place finishes in six multi-team outings, and with everyone returning, Pennsylvania College of Technology golf coach Rob Lytle has his squad primed for more success.
“We’ve been able to get out (practicing) quite a bit. The late winter has been fairly mild. Even though we got a couple of snows, we’ve been out. We’re good,” the second-year coach said.More
