Appalachian receives appreciation award from PA Fish & Boat Commission


Appalachian receives appreciation award from PA Fish & Boat Commission

On January 31, 2012, Appalachian president Josh First participated in an awards ceremony at the Pennsylvania Fish & Boat Commission headquarters, where he was recognized for his central efforts to permanently protect a mile of Clark's Creek, one of Dauphin County's premier trout streams.

First initiated and led the project, working with client Flemish Down, LLC, the Central Pennsylvania Conservancy, PA DCNR, and PFBC, over a two-year time, and was thanked by all the participants for his "tenacity."

Flemish Down, LLC, donated half of the appraised value to CPC, which then qualified for a grant from DCNR to acquire the property. The property was sought after for streamside residential development

The one-mile stretch of Clark's Creek is now owned by the PA Fish & Boat Commission and is open to the public. The property will continue to be known as "Bailey's Grove," after the founder of Flemish Down, and contains woodlands, fields, and highway frontage along its entirety, making it easily accessible.

"I am proud of Appalachian's contribution to the fishing public, as well as to those Pennsylvanians who enjoy rural scenery and knowing that our best natural resources are being actively conserved for future generations," said First.
