SRTA 2023 PLANNING RETREAT

FISH PASSAGE COMING TO SHIKELLAMY

 

DCNR Secretary Cindy Adams Dunn recently joined Department of General Services Acting Secretary Joe Lee to visit the worksite for a future fish passage at Shikellamy State Park’s Adam T. Bower Memorial Dam. The dam (when inflated) creates the 3,000-acre Lake Augusta for the annual summer boating season. A fish passage will provide a much-needed pathway for aquatic life to safely migrate around the dam during that time of year. “DCNR is proud to announce this fish passage and the benefits it will bring to aquatic life at this portion of the mighty Susquehanna River,” Dunn said. “When completed, this project will help us better balance our stewardship of this important natural resource and the fish that will be able to safely pass through the area.” Park officials said the 2023 boating season will operate May to October without any interruptions.

WE WILL MISS YOU BETTY BISHOFF

SRTA recently learned that Betty J. Bishoff passed away on October 1st with her husband, Bruce, at her bedside. Bruce and Betty were longtime volunteers for the SRTA and instrumental in the organization’s founding. She loved nature, cooking, and gardening, and, in addition to serving the SRTA, spent countless hours at Wildwood Park inspiring young minds. In 2017, they fulfilled their dream to move to Maine. Our heartfelt condolences belatedly go out to Bruce, his children and grandchildren, and Betty’s siblings.
