Latest JCWA News:

Want to do something a little bit batty for Earth Day this year? Join JCWA for our Earth Day Bat-tastic Celebration!   We’ll be painting, finishing and erecting bat boxes at the Bridgeport Dam on Sunday, April 27th at 1:30 pm.        Activities for all ages include painting bat boxes, attaching hardware, digging post holes and erecting the bat boxes.  Refreshments will be provided.  We will also have a short talk on the importance of our fuzzy flying friends and some of the issues that concern bat populations today.      Bat Dog will also make a special appearance again this year!    The Foundation for Pennsylvania Watersheds has generously funded the bat boxes and supplies for our Earth Day festivities – thanks to the Foundation for its continuing support!   So please join us for an afternoon of fun, education…and just a little bit of work!  See events page for more details and directions.
