This Saturday, September 18th, the Perkiomen Valley Chapter of Trout Unlimited will be holding a "workday" to complete Phase 3 of their stream bank erosion control project at the Longacre Farm property on the West Branch of the Perkiomen Creek. This is one in a series of annual workdays held by the club, local land owners, and the Pennsylvania Fish & Boat Commission.
The PVTU's first stream bank erosion control project was in 1995, building fencing & cattle crossings at Packwachen Run in Berks County. This year's project calls for the installation of several large log deflectors & stone ballasts in an effort to fortify the stream bank from future erosion. The West Branch of the Perkiomen Creek is a wonderful stretch of water well worth preserving, serving as the home to a naturally reproducing population of wild trout.
If you are interested in joining the PVTU this weekend in their stream bank project, the meet-up time is 8:30 AM at the Longacre Farm, located on Route 100 in Bally, PA. Parking is available across from Jake's Flea Market.
