Fall Clean-up, Cook-out, and Owl Prowl

Help Blue Mountain Wildlife and the Schuylkill Headwaters Association end the summer season with a Clean-Up along the shore of the Kernsville Dam and Peace Rock Beach. Canoes, kayaks and other approved watercraft welcome. Those on foot will be cleaning up the area around the Rock and the Peace Rock Beach on the Schuylkill County side of the river. Those who bring watercraft will help clean up the eastern shore of the Schuylkill. Meet us at the Upper Parking Lot in the Kernsville Dam Recreation Area (about a quarter mile past the Kernsville Dam itself on Kernsville Dam Road). Vehicles may be needed to ferry volunteers over to the Peace Rock Beach and back. SHA and BMW will provide bags, vests, gloves and other clean-up tools.

After the clean-up, join us for a good old-fashioned Cook-Out with hot dogs and s’mores along the shore of the Schuylkill River.

After the Cook-Out, Shea Marino will lead us on an Owl Prowl from the Upper Parking Lot toward The Rock and back. Learn about the nightly life of the noctural creatures at the Kerny, listen to the calls of the various owl species and maybe hear our resident owls return our calls. Dress in layers and bring flashlights.

If you have any questions about the clean-up, contact Alexa Kramer at outreach@schuylkillheadwaters.org or at 570-622-3742 Ext. 119.
