Ken Dufalla, president of the Greene County chapter of the Izaak Walton League, will address the Southwestern Pennsylvania Woodland Owners Association at 7 p.m. Wednesday in Building 10 at the Greene County Fairgrounds.
Dufalla, who writes a bi-weekly “Nature’s Corner” column for the Greene County Messenger, will present the results of the IWLA’s five-year water monitoring program, a citizen’s effort begun with the advent of widespread drilling for natural gas utilizing hydraulic fracturing.
The Izaak Walton League, founded in 1922 and named for the 17th Century English fisherman and author of The Compleat Angler (1653, a pioneering work in the idea of environmental stewardship), is a nationwide conservation organization. The Woodland Owners Association, in its 15th year, is a Greene and Washington county nonprofit interested in sound woodland management practices, including watershed protection.
The meeting is free and open to the public.
