Protecting Pennsylvania's valuable and high quality aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems begins by monitoring the headwaters to the state's major rivers, the rivers that flow from small headwater streams found on state forests, state park lands, and private hunting and fishing club lands--the large contiguous intact forests that provide abundant hunting, angling and recreational opportunities, and the very areas that are being targeted for gas development. To protect these areas, Trout Unlimited and its Pennsylvania Council (collectively "TU") have built a state-wide network of volunteer stewards to monitor high quality streams and conduct visual reconnaissance in watersheds that are most vulnerable to the impacts of gas development. For more information on the program please contact Jake Lemon, Eastern Shale Gas Monitoring Coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
