Watershed Awareness Through Signage Project

The BWA was awarded a grant from the Department of Environmental Protection Environmental Education Program to develop a signage program designed to increase awareness of the watershed and it's many pristine streams. Now, motorists on Routes 390, 447 and 191 will know when they are "Entering the Brodhead Watershed." Three signs with that message have been installed in the Brodhead headwaters. The sign on 390 is north of Skytop Lodge, the sign on 447 is near the Lake in the Clouds entrance and the sign on 191 is just above Griscom Run, a tributary of the Buck Hill Creek.

Doug and Nathan Leies install a new sign off Rte. 390 north of Skytop

In addition to the Entering the Brodhead Watershed signs the grant also provides funding to place smaller signs marking the Streamwatch locations where volunteers have been monitoring the streams throughout the watershed, and stream name signs at 50 locations. 

Leavitt Branch starts at Lake in the Clouds, off Rt 447.

Brodhead and McMichael Creek signs will go up in Stroud Township

In 2014, the BWA is celebrating the 25th Anniversary of its founding in 1989 and the new signs allow residents and visitors alike to know how much we appreciate living and caring for the valuable watershed resources we have right here in the watershed we call home.
