Fall 2019 Newsletter Volume 5, Issue 4

Fall is Here… I had the opportunity to travel across the state this past month, and I never tire of the beauty we experience in Pennsylvania during the fall season. We are truly fortunate to be able to experience the beautiful canvas on full display every year. Currently, we are wrapping up what was another busy year. Within the next month, we will start the process of planning projects and goals for 2020. There is never a shortage of work to be done. If anything, there is only a shortage of time available to get work completed. (I am sure you, dear reader, can relate!) As we start to look towards 2020, I anticipate another exciting year of conservation work in Northumberland County.

This newsletter is more of a late summer newsletter, but I hope it finds you enjoying the warmer months as they start to wind down.

Summers are fairly busy in our office. Our staff have multiple projects to tend to, and our mosquito staff try to keep the pesky insects to a minimum. We are also preparing for the fall months when things start to quiet down a little, and planning for next year starts all over again.

As time continues to fly by, I hope you have the opportunity to enjoy the rest of your summer days. The days are already getting shorter, and fall is just around the corner.

Bundle Up…
As I write this, I realize that spring is a short 2 months away. But as much as the winter chill and shorter days can dull the mood; Christmas, New Year’s, and Valentine’s Day give plenty of reasons to celebrate during this season. Although our office is a little quieter during December, our staff quickly gets busy in January planning for a new year. There is always work to be done, and we look forward to accomplishing much in 2019 in the field of conservation.
